Forecasting Banks’ Corporate Loan Losses Under Stress: A New Corporate Default Model
Gabriel Bruneau (),

No 122, Technical Reports from Bank of Canada
We develop a corporate default model to forecast corporate loan losses of the Canadian banking sector under stress. First, we tackle a data gap by reconstructing historical default probabilities for banks’ loan portfolios. Second, we estimate tail elasticities to capture non-linear relationships between macrofinancial conditions and default probabilities. By explicitly modelling default probabilities associated with macroeconomic tail events, this model significantly improves the Bank of Canada’s stress-testing infrastructure.
