The process for determining the LGD consists of the following steps:

  • Seniority of transaction: A minimum recovery rate is determined based on the seniority of the transaction.
  • Collateral coverage: The collateral coverage of the facility is determined in order to estimate the total recovery rate.
  • Mapping to LGD class: The total recovery rate is mapped to an LGD class using an LGD scale.
