Isda AGM: CDS boom continues

In its 2007 Market Survey, Isda said equity derivatives notionals did not grow in the second half of the year, ending 2007 at $10 trillion. Interest rate derivatives grew to $382.3 trillion from $347.1 trillion at mid-year and $285.7 trillion at the end of 2006.

The total notional value of $454.5 trillion across asset classes equates to a gross mark-to-market value of $9.8 trillion and a credit exposure after netting out of $2.3 trillion.

Isda's chief executive, Robert Pickel, said the results made it more important to "reinforce the operational infrastructure to enable scalable growth and improve liquidity for the continued development of these important risk management tools".
