All investment models have risks and returns, and in the capital asset pricing model, there is only one source of market risk captured in the market portfolio where the risk premium is the premium that the investors demand when investing in the portfolio.

There can be two risks associated with credit risk borne by investors holding security over a specific duration- Firstly, the risk of a default occurring anytime, and secondly, the risk of a change in probability of future default that can lead to the change of the value of the security in the secondary market.

The first type of risk is called jump-to-default, and second is the mark-to-market.

- In the case of risk-averse investors - the expected return on defaultable security re-flects some compensation required by investors for bearing such type of risks.
- The market price of default risk is typically identified by assuming that the market price of risk associated with the change of measure from the statistical default distri-bution to the risk-neutral default distribution is an affine function of the intensity un-der the risk-neutral measure. The market price determined by this method takes into consideration only the mark-to-market component of the default risk.
- To estimate the jump-to-default or the mark-to-market risk premium, it is necessary to draw upon the information that is based on actual defaults. The estimates predicted on the price of securities and not on default suffer from bias that is equivalent to the sur-vivorship bias.
- Most asset classes risk and return are first defined as risk-free. One can use the ex-pected return on the asset as the risk-free rate. The expected returns on risky invest-ments are measured as relative to the risk-free rate. The risk-free rate comes up with expected returns and it is measured consistently with the cash flows. So if the cash flow is estimated in nominal US dollar terms, the risk-free rate will be the US Treasury bond rate. Both cash flow and discount rates are affected by expected inflation and a low discount rate that comes with a low-risk rate can offset by a decline in expected nominal growth rates for cash flows where the value will remain unchanged.
- There can be multiple risk premiums, and the default risk for bonds is captured through default spread that the firm pays over and above the riskless rate.
- Most commonly used methods employ the expected default frequency of Moody's KMV as a proxy to get actual default probabilities. The general description of the Moodys – KMV makes it clear that the EDF is calculated as a non-parametric func-tion of the distance to default.

[Distance to default is the difference between an esti-mate of the firm value and the value of firm liabilities expressed in units of the volatil-ity of the firm's value. Given the inertia in estimating the value of debt and volatility, the change of this measure is wildly determined by the change in equity. It has been widely researched by experts for accuracy in prediction. Such EDFs have higher pre-dictive power than fund ratings because the rating measure default risk independent of the business cycle but EDFs depend on the stock price and they are mostly time-variant. EDFs can identify 72% of defaults and credit ratings only 61%. EDFs have been used to determine default premium for the US corporate CDAS spreads and for the stock price for Japanese banks CDS spreads.]

The double-stochastic Poisson modelling of Duffie and Singleton (1997) and Lando(1998) provides a tractable framework to measure the default risk premium embedded in CDS prices. Such a framework leads to closed-form formulae to right-hand expression in avoiding the problem of numerical differentiation. It is called default event risk premium where the premium is needed to compensate for the default event.

It can also be called credit event risk or jump to default. EDFs based estimates of jump risk may suffer from opposite bias from that of the rating based estimates.

There are macroeconomic drivers where the economists proceed at an individual level to identify the variables affecting the individual risk premium by performing dynamic panel estimation. They can even use the aggregate level to analyze the dynamics of the components required for calculating the variable.

There are certain conditions where sovereign start to show difficulties and investors need higher default risk premiums for corporate accounting debts.
