Credit Derivatives in Restructuring

The INSOL Lenders Group initiated a project to produce a guidance booklet for insolvency practitioners and others on matters relating to the impact of credit derivatives in restructurings. The working group of this project worked on the draft for over 18 months and in October 2006 INSOL launched a booklet entitled “Credit Derivatives in Restructurings”. The objective of the publication is to raise awareness and promote understanding of relevant issues, and to provide a point of reference for those involved in restructurings. The book covers an overview of the credit derivatives market, basic elements of credit default swaps, settlement following a credit event, and a comparison with other types of credit products and techniques. The book also includes several practice points. Copies are available for £50 plus post and package, please contact Heather Callow at INSOL to order your copy.
