In this paper we study the problem of estimating probability of large losses in the framework of doubly stochastic credit risk models. We derive a logarithmic asymptote for the probability of interest in a specific asymptotic regime and propose an asymptotically optimal importance sampling algorithm for efficiently estimating the same. The numerical results in the last section corroborate our theoretical findings.
