Abstract (Swedish)
This thesis investigates the possibility of modelling the covered bond risk, quantied
by the yield spread over government bond, by using a multi factor model with explanatory
factors. The thesis focuses on covered bond issued in Sweden, in Swedish krona, by
Swedish issuers. The most signicant result is that there is a relationship between issuer
risk, quantied by the CDS spread, and the covered bond risk. However the CDS only
explain a relatively small amount of the risk in the covered bonds. The second nding
concludes that there is an overall market movement that explains a large amount of the
risk in the covered bonds. Although this market movement cannot be captured by a
factor found in available data. In the thesis both key... (More)
