Derivatives

Derivatives are financial instruments that derive from an underlying asset such as a commodity, bond or currency.

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.
