SocGen to launch tradeable CDS index

Societe Generale is planning to launch a tradeable credit derivatives index, dubbed Credindex, before the end of 2006 in an attempt to broaden the appeal of the market beyond the bank's traditional investor base.

The idea was born out of discussions between the bank and one of its insurance clients. In addition to insurance fund managers, retail investors may also be able to access the credit markets via such a product.
