ABCs of Swaps & Other Derivatives

October 19, 2009

Practising Law Institute Program

Sutherland attorney Warren N. Davis is speaking at PLI's program "ABCs of Swaps & Other Derivatives," October 19, 2009, in New York City. At this program, the faculty will explain what derivatives are, how they work and the forms of documentation used in this fast-paced and fast-growing industry.

The unrelenting wave of credit crisis casualties has financial institutions scrambling to protect their bottom lines. In these uncertain times, once solid investment vehicles are now looked upon  as carrying great risk. A derivative is a financial instrument that allocates the risks and price exposures associated with a designated asset between the parties to an instrument. Derivatives can provide price exposure or price insulation to changes in the price or level of an open-ended range of assets, including stocks, interest rates, currencies, bonds, commodities, insured risks, credit risks, investment funds, property, the weather and more. An understanding of the characteristics and documentation of these instruments is the first step to effective lawyering.
