We present a non-asymptotic approach to validate estimates of default probabilities that makes full use of the available information in default data. The results show that large banks do not necessarily have a competitive advantage on middle sized banks or well positioned small insititutes. The results can also be used to derive strategic implications for the data management of banks and rating agencies.
