## EDF Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the EDF.

EDF = DP / MVA * AV

Variables:

- EDF is the EDF (%)
- DP is the default point ($)
- MVA is the market value of assets ($)
- AV is the asset volatility (%)

To calculate the expected default frequency, divide the default points by the market value of the assets, then multiply by the asset volatility.

## How to Calculate EDF?

The following steps outline how to calculate the EDF.

- First, determine the default point ($).
- Next, determine the market value of assets ($).
- Next, determine the asset volatility (%).
- Next, gather the formula from above = EDF = DP / MVA * AV.
- Finally, calculate the EDF.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

default point ($) = 50,000,000

market value of assets ($) = 70,000,000

asset volatility (%) = .75

EDF = DP / MVA * AV =** ** ?
