## Abstract: The calculation of the distribution of credit portfolio value is very

important in the CreditMetrics model. Traditionally Monte Carlo simulation is
used to calculate the full distribution of portfolio value. The model discussed in
this article decomposes the credit portfolio value into two parts: market factor
and idiosyncratic factor, then three new conditional approaches are introduced
to handle the problem. Finally the three methods were compared with standard
Monte Carlo simulation in concrete cases.
