A Theoretical Model for the Term Structure of Corporate Credit based on Competitive Advantage
Kanshukan Rajaratnam and
European Financial Management, 2017, vol. 23, issue 2, 183-210
We derive the term structure of corporate credit based on the competitive advantage of a firm and the tax deductibility of its interest payments. We consider the competitive advantage enjoyed by the firm as the central tenet of our model and capture its eventual demise in a probabilistic manner. We compensate the bond holder for expected losses and then provide an additional spread based on the tax deductibility of interest payments. Our simple intuitive model appears to overcome some of the wellâ€ known shortcomings of structural credit risk models.
