内容简介:

What drives short-term credit spreads is a crucial yet controversial question in credit markets, yet the empirical literature on the determinants of such spreads is rather thin perhaps due to data limitations. Using a unique data set of secondary market transaction prices of Chinese commercial papers, this paper provides a comprehensive study on the determinants of short-term credit spreads within the structural framework of credit risk modeling. Specifically, we propose a model of risky debt pricing with rollover risk, jumps, and endogenous liquidity. Among other things, this model allows us to decompose commercial paper yield spreads into a credit component and a liquidity component in a unified manner. We find that both credit and liquidity factors are important determinants of short-term corporate yield spreads and that on average, the proposed structural model can largely match levels of commercial paper spreads in our sample. Especially, our decomposition results indicate that jump risk and market illiquidity make equally important contributions to the spreads on commercial papers.
