|Title:||Survival Analysis for Credit Scoring: Incidence and Latency|
Discipline of Business Analytics
|Abstract:||Duration analysis is an analytical tool for time-to-event data that has been borrowed from medicine and engineering to be applied by econometricians to investigate typical economic and finance problems. In applications to credit data, time to the pre-determined maturity events have been treated as censored observations for the events with stochastic latency. A methodology, motivated by the cure rate model framework, is developed in this paper to appropriately analyse a set of mutually exclusive terminal events where at least one event may have a predetermined latency. The methodology is applied to a set of personal loan data provided by one of Australia's largest financial services institutions. This is the first framework to simultaneously model prepayment, write off and maturity events for loans. Furthermore, in the class of cure rate models it is the first fully parametric multinomial model and the first to accommodate for an event with pre-determined latency. The simulation study found this model performed better than the two most common applications of survival analysis to credit data. In addition, the result of the application to personal loans data reveals particular explanatory variables can act in different directions upon incidence and latency of an event and variables exist that may be statistically significant in explaining only incidence or latency.|
