In other words, we would never be forced to work with Monte Carlo simulations, because the portfolio loss would conveniently be given in a closed (namely Gaussian) form with well-known properties. Unfortunately in credit risk modeling we can not expect to find independency of losses. Moreover, it will turn out that correlation is the central challenge in credit portfolio risk. Therefore, we turn now to more realistic elaborations of loss statistics. One basic idea for modeling correlated defaults (by mixing) is the randomization of the involved default probabilities in a correlated manner.

The reasoning underlying our terminology is as follows: A credit portfolio is nothing but a collection of, say m, transactions or deals with certain counterparties. Every counterparty involved creates basically (in a two-state model) two future scenarios: Either the counterparty defaults3 , or the counterparty survives4 . In the case of default of obligor i the indicator variable Li equals 1; in the case of survival we have Li = 0. t. the particular valuation horizon (here, one year). The variable L defined above is then called the portfolio loss, no matter if quoted as an absolute or percentage value.

24) shows that the Bernoulli model always induces a higher default correlation than the Poisson model. But higher default correlations result in fatter tails of the corresponding loss distributions. In other words one could say that given equal first and second moments of Pi and Λi , the expectations of Li and Li will match, but the variance of Li will always exceed the variance of Li , thereby inducing lower default correlations. So there is a systematic difference between the Bernoulli and Poisson mixture models.
