Abstract: Credit risk is an important issue of current research in finance. While there is a lot of work on modeling credit risk, there is only a few works on continuous-time portfolio optimization with defaultable securities. In this paper we solve investment problems with defaultable bonds and stocks. We assume that credit risk is modeled by a firm value model.
