Credit Default Swap § Pricing And Valuation

Credit default swaps (CDS) are a type of financial contract that pay out if a debtor defaults on its debt.

CDS contracts can be structured to cover specific types of debts, such as judgments, car loans, and credit card debts.

When bought by a financial institution, the bank pays the other party (the debtor) a fixed fee for every swap that it makes.
