Spanish derivatives stand on the cusp

The Spanish credit derivatives market is at a crossroads. A law is due to be ratified in November liberalising the Spanish investment and derivatives industry.

"The new legislation should be positive for the market," says Juan Blasco, head of credit trading at BBVA in Madrid.
