Credit default swap
A bilateral financial contract in which one counterparty (the protection buyer or buyer) pays a periodic fee, typically expressed in Basis points per annum on the notional amount, in return for a contingent payment by the other counterparty (the protection seller or seller) upon the occurrence of a Credit event with respect to a specified reference entity. The contingent payment is designed to mirror the loss incurred by creditors of the reference entity in the event of its Default. The settlement mechanism may be Cash or physical.
