The Single Risk Factor Approach to Capital Charges in Case of Correlated Loss Given Default Rates

by Dirk Tasche of Deutsche Bundesbank

February 17, 2004

This methodology is based on modelling of LGD and default event with a single loss variable. The resulting formulas for capital charges are numerically compared to the current proposals by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision.
