Professor Alex Hunt
This course will
provide an in-depth, advanced level understanding of a full range of
transactions, including interest rate, foreign exchange, credit, and
equity derivatives; their underlying trading strategies; and the laws and
regulations that apply to these OTC transactions. This course will examine
how these products are used in complex structured finance transactions,
such as synthetic securitizations. It will explain in detail why
counterparties enter into these transactions, how they are documented, and
the principal legal issues (both domestic and international) surrounding
these complex OTC products, including securities, bankruptcy, and
regulatory issues. The vast majority of OTC derivatives transactions are
documented under industry standard documents.
Pre-requisite Courses: Each student must have taken either Derivatives Documents – Mastering the Master Agreement, or Derivatives Law – An Introduction to Basic Concepts.
