Product Description

Review

"An excellent, high-quality account of one of the most important areas of the debt capital and corporate credit markets today."--Didier Joannas, SunGard, Hong Kong "The rapid growth of the credit derivatives markets has been accompanied by similar output in the related literature. For clarity, accessibility, relevance and detail, this is easily the best addition to this literature."--Abukar Ali, Bloomberg L.P.

Format: Kindle Edition
This book covers the most important credit derivatives from basics to complex applications. It gave me a great perspective on the strategies employed by the major players in asset swaps, CDSs, CLNs and other instruments. It also provides a good foundation on understanding the visible and invisible risks inherent in these instruments. As credit risk represents over 60% of the risk in a financial institution, having this guide at your fingertips is essential.

Great reference for bankers and the intellectually curious on the growing market of credit risk transfer vehicles.

Okay for an intro - lacks substance 5 Nov. 2013
By Scott_Amazon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is not worth the price in my opinion. The explanation of credit derivatives is very basic, which is okay since its an introduction, but I was expecting more on how these instruments actually trade in the market place, quoting conventions of High Yield vs IG credit derivs, insights on valuation, market conventions, etc. A good book if you are just starting in credit derivs and want to understand the very basics, but for $70 there wasn't much meet to it (150 pages)
