The copula theory is a fundamental instrument used in modeling multivariate distributions. It defines the joint distribution via the marginal distributions together with the dependence between variables. Copulas can also model dynamic structures. This paper offers a brief description of the copulas’ statistical procedures implemented on real market data. A direct application of the Gaussian copula to the assessment of a portfolio of loans belonging to one of the banks operating in Lebanon is illustrated in order to make the implementation of the copula simple and straightforward.
