Credit Derivatives Training

ProTrain Online


The development of credit derivatives is a logical extension of two significant developments: securitization, and derivatives. Credit derivatives are contracts that transfer an asset's risk and return from one counterparty to another without transferring ownership of the underlying asset. The choice of the contract depends upon the goals a financial institution is looking to achieve.

The global market for credit derivatives is still quite small compared with other derivatives markets, but it is growing rapidly. A number of impediments could slow the growth of this market, most of which revolve around the complexity involved in pricing and documenting these transactions.
