I am given some preliminary data with a goal to estimate the
probability of default. This data consists of Market premium for different tenors.
One such example read that, Market
Premium (Running and Up-front) for tenor 5 years are 1.40% and 0%. Similarly the
Market Premium (Running and Up-front) for tenor 8 years are 1.55% and 0%.
I am curious what this data means? Is the
Running Market Premium basically Credit Spread value for that particular tenor? What then is the meaning of
Up-front Market premium?
Any pointer is very appreciated.
