Credit Risk

Credit risk is risk resulting from uncertainty in a counterparty's ability or willingness to meet its contractual obligations. Examples include:
A bank makes a loan to a corporate client. Because it is possible that the client will fail to make timely principal or interest payments, the bank faces credit risk.
A corporation executes an interest rate swap with a counterparty. If interest rates move in the corporation's favor, the counterparty will owe the corporation a net obligation. Because the counterparty could fail to perform on such an obligation, the corporation faces pre-settlement credit risk.
An investment company has a forward contract to exchange German marks for US dollars with a foreign bank. On the contract's maturity date, the investment company wires its mark payment, but because of time differences, there is a delay in the foreign bank making its corresponding dollar payment. Because it is possible that the bank will fail to make its payment, the corporation faces settlement credit risk.
