The Potential for New Derivatives Instruments to Cover Terrorism Risks

This chapter begins by a brief overview of the credit derivatives market and the structures of credit default swaps (which are highly relevant to our discussion of catastrophe-linked derivatives). It then looks at catastrophe-linked derivatives and two ideas for new instruments to cover terrorism risk—catastrophe risk swaps and swaptions—and some of the challenges and advantages to the development of these products.
