Abstract: We propose a discrete-time affi ne pricing model that simultaneously allows for (i) the presence of systemic entities by departing from the no-jump condition on the factors'conditional distribution, (ii) contagion effects, (iii) and the pricing of credit events. Our a ffine framework delivers explicit pricing formulas for default-sensitive securities like bonds and credit default swaps (CDS). We estimate a multi-country version of the model and address economic questions related to the pricing of sovereign credit risk. Speci cally, using euro-area data, we explore the in fluence of allowing for the pricing of credit events, we compare frailty and contagion channels, and we extract measures of depreciation-at-default from CDS denominated indifferent currencies.

Keywords: a ffine credit risk model; Gamma-zero distribution; no-jump condition; contagion; credit-eventrisk; sovereign credit risk and exchange rates. (search for similar items in EconPapers)
