16 Recall that in the case of Gaussian variables uncorrelated is equivalent to independent. ©2003 CRC Press LLC Alternatively to the beta of a firm one could also look at the coefficient of determination of the regression Equation (1. 17). The coefficient of determination quantifies how much of the variability of ri can be explained by Φi . This quantity is usually called the R-squared, R2 , of counterparty i and constitutes an important input parameter in all credit risk models based on asset values.

Lm = lm ] = (2. 7) 0 m where k= li li ∈ {0, 1}. and i=1 The probability that exactly k defaults occur is given by P[L = k] = m k 1 pk (1 − p)m−k dF (p) .

5) Therefore, the default correlation in a Bernoulli mixture model is Corr[Li , Lj ] = Cov[Pi , Pj ] E[Pi ] (1 − E[Pi ]) E[Pj ] (1 − E[Pj ]) . (2. 6) Equation (2. 5) respectively Equation (2. 6) show that the dependence between losses in the portfolio is fully captured by the covariance structure of the multivariate distribution F of P . 4 presents some examples for a meaningful specification of F . 2 Uniform Default Probability and Uniform Correlation For portfolios where all exposures are of approximately the same size and type in terms of risk, it makes sense to assume a uniform default probability and a uniform correlation among transactions in the portfolio.
