Abstract: How should economic or regulatory capital be allocated to tranches of securitisations? The standard Basel conditional dependence calculations are complicated in this case by non-linearity effects and complex deal dependence. Here, Michael Gordy and David Jones present an uncertainty in loss provision approach that simplifies these problems, and leads to a single economic capital formula suitable for regulatory purposes.

Keywords: Basel II, Credit portfolio risk, Quantitative analysis, Regulatory capital.
