Structured Credit Investor SCI’s 5th Annual Capital Relief Trades Seminar 17 October 2019, London


Derivatives are financial instruments that derive from an underlying asset such as a commodity, bond or currency. SCI’s derivatives coverage focuses on the structuring and trading of derivatives relating to securitisation and structured credit. The instruments covered are primarily: credit default swaps (CDS) and options; correlation trading through index tranches; total return swaps on credit and loan indices and baskets; bespoke tranches; and other new and unusual synthetic structures.
