These are typical situations in which credit risk manifests itself. [+]

Overview

Imagine that you are a bank and a main part of your daily business is to lend money. Unfortunately, lending money is a risky business - there is no 100% guarantee that you will get all your money back. If the borrower defaults, you will face losses in your portfolio.

As the 2008 financial crisis has shown us, a correct understanding of credit risk and the ability to manage it are fundamental in today's world.... [-]
