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.

This panel will discuss how CDS contracts work, how they are traded, their risks and benefits, and related litigation.
