I wrote an article in this month’s Risk Professional Magazine discussing the current state of counterparty risk concerns in the financial markets following the credit crisis and the passage of Dodd-Frank. Please feel free to post your comments are send them to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. A short blurb:
The failures of Bear Stearns and Lehman Brother illuminated the dangers of counterparty risk in the OTC derivatives market. While this risk remains problematic, regulators and financial institutions are taking steps to at least reduce it through central clearing and proactive trade monitoring.
