This is a rich and comprehensive guide to the instruments financing most of corporate America (bonds and loans) and their derivatives. Presented in five sections, the authors cover a broad range of areas from the basics to more advanced topics: Section One discusses Underlying Assets (U.S. & European loans, corporate bonds, and credit risk analysis); Section Two discusses collateralized loan obligations and their rating and performance outlook; Section Three offers an overview of synthetics including CDSs, LCDSs, CDXs, LCDXs and their tranches; Section Four looks at linking the cash and the synthetic markets and compares cash CLOs and Tranche LCDX; and Section Five identifies and defines trade types for the reader.
