Credit and counterparty risk is defined as the current and prospective risk to earnings or capital arising from an obligor’s (typically a client’s or counterparty’s) failure to meet the terms of any obligation to us or otherwise to perform as agreed.

the resilience of the co-op business model
Overlooked by the mainstream media and only rarely discussed in the management journals is the resilience of the Co-operative business model.  The reason for this may well be the lack of management scandals, which have plagued the corporate and the nonprofit sectors over the past 20 years. Co-operatives have also maintained a low profile in the current economic meltdown. There are almost 10,000 credit unions in the U.S. with 84 million members and assets in excess of $600 billion.  Not one of these defaulted or went to Washington for TARP money simply because they are close to their communities and know their customers.  Credit ... market research, surveys and trends
microfinance faces meltdown: co-operative news
Laily Begum has become famous in Bangladesh. She is the public face of those who borrowed from Grameen Bank, the microfinance institution that creates opportunities for Bangladesh’s rural poor. Begum’s face has been on thousands of posters and leaflets, promoting the benefits of microcredit.   Begum’s loan from Grameen was for a mere 500 taka (about £4 at today’s exchange rate), which at the time, 11 years ago, was enough to obtain a mobile phone. With this, Begum became possibly the first ‘village phone lady’ in Bangladesh, establishing a profitable business in letting fellow villagers make ... market research, surveys and trends


Asset-Backed Securities, by Phillip L. Zweig: The Concise ...
f the array of creative financing techniques that came of age in the eighties, one that emerged from that tumultuous decade with its reputation intact is asset securitization.

Credit-Rating Rules Unlikely to 'Freeze' Securitization Markets
July 21 (Bloomberg) -- Credit raters’ reactions to the U.S. financial-regulation law that boosts their legal risks are unlikely to “freeze” the securitization market even while forcing changes in practices and potentially slowing sales, RBS Securities Inc. and Bank of America Corp. analysts said. Issuers will probably do more so-called private placement or 144a transactions, which can be bought only by large, sophisticated buyers and aren’t affected by the regulatory changes, Paul Jablansky, a senior debt strategist at Stamford, Connecticut-based RBS Securities, said in a telephone interview. If they do, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
