Composite Likelihood for Stochastic Migration Model with Unobserved Factor

  title={Composite Likelihood for Stochastic Migration Model with Unobserved Factor},
  author={A Djogbenou and Christian Gouri'eroux and Joann Jasiak and Maygol Bandehali},
We introduce the Maximum Composite Likelihood (MCL) estimation method for the stochastic factor ordered Probit model of credit rating transitions of firms. This model is recommended to banks and financial institutions as part of internal credit risk assessment procedures under the Basel III regulations. However, its exact likelihood function involves a high-dimensional integral, which can be approximated numerically and next this approximation can be maximized. However, the associated estimates… Expand


Composite Likelihood Estimation of an Autoregressive Panel Probit Model with Random Effects
Modeling and estimating persistent discrete data can be challenging. In this paper, we use an autoregressive panel probit model where the autocorrelation in the discrete variable is driven by theExpand
This paper deals with asymptotically efficient estimation in exchangeable nonlinear dynamic panel models with common unobservable factors. These models are relevant for applications to largeExpand
The Multi-State Latent Factor Intensity Model for Credit Rating Transitions
A new empirical reduced-form model for credit rating transitions is introduced. It is a parametric intensity-based duration model with multiple states and driven by exogenous covariates and latentExpand
Efficient likelihood estimation in state space models
Motivated by studying asymptotic properties of the maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) in stochastic volatility (SV) models, in this paper we investigate likelihood estimation in state space models.Expand
Frailty Correlated Default
The probability of extreme default losses on portfolios of U.S. corporate debt is much greater than would be estimated under the standard assumption that default correlation arises only from exposureExpand
The Ordered Qualitative Model for Credit Rating Transitions
Information on the expected changes in credit quality of obligors is contained in credit migration matrices which trace out the movements of firms across ratings categories in a given period of timeExpand
Maximum Likelihood Estimation of Misspecified Models
This paper examines the consequences and detection of model misspecification when using maximum likelihood techniques for estimation and inference. The quasi-maximum likelihood estimator (QMLE)Expand
Observation-Driven Mixed-Measurement Dynamic Factor Models with an Application to Credit Risk
Abstract We propose an observation-driven dynamic factor model for mixed-measurement and mixed-frequency panel data. Time series observations may come from a range of families of distributions, beExpand
Nonparametric estimation of non-exchangeable latent-variable models
We propose a two-step method to nonparametrically estimate multivariate models in which the observed outcomes are independent conditional on a discrete latent variable. Applications includeExpand
Affine Models for Credit Risk Analysis
A discrete-time affine analysis of credit risk is developed, which explains how different types of factors can be introduced to capture separately the term structure of default correlation, default heterogeneity, correlation between default, and loss-given-default and why the factor dynamics are less constrained in discrete time and are able to reproduce complicated cycle effects.
