CDO Tranche Sensitivities in the Gaussian Copula Model

by Chao Meng of Louisiana State University, and
Ambar N. Sengupta of Louisiana State University

September 2009

Abstract: We derive explicit formulas for CDO tranche sensitivity to parameter variations, and prove results concerning the qualitative behavior of such tranche sensitivities, for a homogeneous portfolio governed by the one-factor Gaussian copula. A Poisson-mixture model is also investigated in a similar
