Think of quarterly payments. For convenience, we set t0 = 0. We assume, for the sake of simplicity, that fee and loss payments are made at the end of each period; the first time at t1 and the last time at maturity (in case of no default). 1) i=1 where PSurv (ti ) indicates the survival probability up to time ti and c the par spread per annum. e. the present value of the premium leg of a CDS with maturity T assuming a premium of 1 bp and a unit notional amount: n A(0, T ) = D(0, ti )PSurv (ti ) ti .

E. the recovery value is 4,000 euros). The protection seller will pay an amount equal to N (1 − R) = 6,000 euros. After default no further fee is paid by the protection buyer to the protection seller. 2. 2 Protection buyer cash flow for a CDS with maturity T = 3 years, in case a default occurs at time τ = 2 years. e. the recovery rate is R = 40%). We have quarterly payments. 1 Credit Default Swaps Pricing In order to understand how to price a CDS with maturity T , let us denote by c the spread of the contract per annum.

The paths of a Brownian motion are continuous but very erratic. 1 Finally, the following scaling property holds: if W = {Wt , t ≥ 0} is a Brownian motion then for any c = 0, Wˆ = {Wˆ t = cWt/c2 , t ≥ 0} is also a Brownian motion. A Brownian motion can be easily simulated by discretizing time using a very small step t. The value of a Brownian motion at time points {n t, n = 1, 2, . } is obtained by sampling a series of Standard Normal N (0, 1) random numbers {νn , n = 1, 2, . } and setting: W0 = 0, Wn t = W(n−1) t + √ t νn .
