Finance Magazine - January 2009 Issue

 
The year of the great test: 2009
There is a great urgency for decisive action on the key fronts of the Exchequer funding crisis (of which we write on Page 4), and the re-funding of the domestic banking system (see below). The task of restoring stability to both will take all of 2009, it is likely, at least.

Professor Moorad Choudhry explores the interconnection between credit derivatives, including structured credit products such as collateralised debt obligations (CDOs), and the 2007 sub-prime mortgage crash and subsequent credit crunch. He discusses how the age-old adage of investing, to know one’s risk, remains as important now as it was in the time of the South Sea bubble. He suggests further that credit derivatives, far from being in some way instruments of evil, are vital to maintaining liquidity and transparency in the financial system.
