Swap Credit Risk: An Empirical Investigation on Transaction Data
Hugues Pirotte Speder and
Working Papers CEB from ULB -- Universite Libre de Bruxelles
Currency and interest rate swaps are subject to a complex, two-sided default risk. Although several theoretical papers have recently addressed the problem of pricing swap credit risk, the empirical literature is almost non-existent. This is the only study we know of that uses actual transaction data to document the effect of credit risk on swap spreads. We provide results for both interest rate and currency swaps.
