One of the main problems in credit risk management is the correlated default. In large portfolios, computing the default dependencies among issuers is an essential part in quantifying the portfolio's credit. The most important problems related to credit risk management are understanding the complex dependence structure of the associated variables and lacking the data. This paper aims at introducing a new methodology for credit risk management based on Bayesian copulas. In this paper, the focus is specifically on a new method of simulating the joint distribution of default risk. This methodology joins the use of copulas and Bayesian models. Using copulas, the joint multivariate probability distribution of a random vector can be separated into individual components characterized by marginal distributions. The model is based on a jump diffusion process for the intensities. Another important problem in credit risk management is the lack of data, which influences the parameter estimation. Considering this drawback, the employment of Bayesian methods and simulation tools could be a natural solution to the problem. This suggests the use of Bayesian models, computed via simulation methods and in particular, Markov chain Monte Carlo. Bayesian methods in Student's $t$ copula are efficient enough for heavy tail distribution. Moreover, our main outcome is that the application of Bayesian methodology causes a reduction of measure while that copula is Student's $t$. Finally, the conclusion of Bayesian copulas with classic copulas was compared through a simulation study.
