Maximum likelihood estimation of first-passage structural credit risk models correcting for the survivorship bias


We study the statistical properties of the maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) accounting for survivorship bias for models based on the first-passage of the geometric Brownian motion. We find that neglecting the survivorship... [ view full abstract ]
