The Jarrow—Turnbull model was the first "reduced-form" credit risk model. It was published in by Robert A. Reduced-form models are an approach to credit risk modeling that contrasts sharply with the "structural credit models". Large financial institutions employ default models of both the structural and reduced form types. Kamakura Corporation , where Robert Jarrow serves as director of research, has offered both structural and reduced form default probabilities on public companies since

Scientific Research An Academic Publisher. Jarrow, R. The Journal of Finance, 1, Credit risk arises whenever a borrower is expecting to use future cash flows to pay a current debt. It is closely tied to the potential return of investment, the most notable being that the yields on bonds correlate strongly to their perceived credit risk.
Credit risk embedded in a financial transaction, is the risk that at least one of the parties involved in the transaction will suffer a financial loss due to decline in creditworthiness of the counter-party to the transaction or perhaps of some third party.
Reduced-form approach is known as intensity-based approach. This is purely probabilistic in nature and technically speaking it has a lot in common with the reliability theory. Here the value of firm is not modeled but specifically the default risk is related either by a deterministic default intensity function or more general by stochastic intensity. Hybrid model combines the structural and intensity-based approaches. While avoiding their difficulties, it picks the best features of both approaches, the economic and intuitive appeal of the structural approach and the tractability and empirical fit of the intensity-based approach.
