Credit default swap

A specific kind of counterparty agreement which allows the Transfer of third party Credit risk from one Party to the other. One Party in the Swap is a Lender and faces Credit risk from a third party, and the counterparty in the Credit default Swap agrees to insure this Risk in Exchange of regular periodic payments (essentially an Insurance premium). If the third Party defaults, the Party providing Insurance will have to Purchase from the Insured party the defaulted Asset. In turn, the Insurer pays the Insured the remaining Interest on the Debt, as well as the Principal.
