Abstract
This thesis considers quantitative tools for assessing concentration risks in credit portfolios that may underlie
decision making in an active portfolio management setting. The study incorporates a literature review,
which considers analytical and simulation based credit risk models in a Merton-type framework as well as
aspects of credit portfolio management. The literature review is followed by a numerical analysis in which
the credit risk models are evaluated with respect to accuracy and computational efficiency and the results
suggests that the simulations based models are suitable for being incorporated into an active portfolio
management framework in the setting tested.
