Highlights

Credit Derivatives and Synthetic Securitisation

Credit derivatives, a device of structured trading in credit risks, emerged around 1993 and in a short span of 8 years has attained a global volume of USD 1.5 trillion. Credit derivatives are today used in global banking to transfer risks, clone debt securities, structure and leverage positions on credit assets, etc.

Add to it the device of securitisation, and credit risk becomes a commodity for the capital markets.

Cohesive and comprehensive guide:

Vinod Kothari’s treatise is consistent and cohesive being written by a single author (except for 2 chapters by guest contributors) – a feature that multi-author anthologies are regrettably found lacking.

And it is comprehensive – picking up the essential conceptual threads of credit derivatives, the author takes you through the nitty-gritty of synthetic securitisation with the help of several recent, real-life case studies. The discussion includes a lucid easy-to-read exposition of the legal, tax and accounting rules, including the latest accounting standards FAS 133/ IAS 39.

The case studies have been selected to represent various types of synthetic CDOs from recent transactions – and each highlights the developing life cycle of the synthetic CDO product.

Highlights:

  • Updated information on global developments till end-June 2002
  • A unique FREE update service to keep you updated on developments up till December 31, 2002 (only for one person per copy bought) (Updates have already been posted upto Feb 2003)
  • Main author and Guest contributors elaborately discuss pricing of credit derivatives
  • A comprehensive glossary of credit derivative terms
  • Cross-referenced and richly annotated text
  • Elaborate subject index.
