  • Purpose:
    The purpose of the current study will be to analyse the corporate credit risk using the joint model, which has been applied successfully in medical research but yet to be used in credit risk modeling. Embedded with a mixed-effect model to assess the longitudinal evolution of time-dependent variables, the joint model is expected to outperform existing models in predicting credit risk.
  • Study scope:
    The study will focus on American listed companies. The aim of the model is to find the association between selected microeconomic/macroeconomic variables and the credit risk. The study is interested in default risk as well as migration risk. The model can also be extended to analyse sovereign risk.
