Abstract: Equity default swaps are quasi credit financial instruments. With the 2008 financial turmoil in the credit markets, credit derivatives have attracted the attention of investors and regulators and have drawn concerns regarding their complexity and pricing opacity. Defaults and default correlation are not directly observable making credit derivatives modeling and pricing a challenging area. As against this the underlying variable in equity default swaps (equity prices and their correlations) are directly observable in the markets. The Equity Default Swap could prove to be a valuable component in the area of credit derivatives and would make a powerful balancing component to the credit default swaps market. In this thesis, the pricing of equity default swaps through two major approaches, the structural approach and the equity pricing model approach have been empirically tested with actual observed equity default swaps market data. Suitable models for pricing have been analyzed and proposed with appropriate modifications.
