Credit default swaps (CDS), derivatives designed to manage the risk that fixed-income obligations may go unpaid, have become a multi-billion-dollar market within a decade of their genesis. Surging defaults on the underlying investments amid the recent financial crisis have led to increased litigation between the parties involved in these complex transactions. This panel will discuss how CDS contracts work, how they are traded, their risks and benefits, and related litigation.
