2) In class, we constructed a CDO utilizing three bonds. We saw that by utilizing “pooling”, and “prioritizing” default claims, we created securities with attractive characteristics. Essentially, we “re-packaged” existing debt that is “pari passu” into priority claims on the collateral of the pool. The result is, a portion of the issued debt has reduced probability of default and is of higher quality than the collateral of the pool – that securitizes the debt. (75 points)
a) Assume you purchase four bonds. Create a CDO and issue four tranches of bonds. Model the pool and display the probabilities of default, the pay-offs, and recovery rates. Calculate the current price of each bond and the YTM. Calculate the total market value of the pool.Collateral:
1) The collateral has a total value of 400 with 100 allocated to each bond
2) Bonds are risky, speculative grade bonds
3) Defaults are independent and occur only at maturity
4) At maturity, each bond pays 100
5) Each bond has a 15% probability of default
6) Each bond has a 30% recovery rate

1) Senior Tranche ?

3) Subordinated Mezzanine Tranche ?
4) Subordinated Tranche ?
