Abstract

The aim of this paper is to fit Moody’s default rates by a “Perpetual-Debt Structural Model”. We show that a single economy-wide factor, V, is sufficient to describe Moody’s data, given some parameters that contribute to measure firm’s leverage, payout policy and business risk. The model allows to estimate default probabilities for any time horizon and any class of rating, conditioned on the current state of the economy
