Part D The Bank as Service Provider, 25 Sources of Bank Liability
- Regulation of banks — Credit — Swaps
This chapter considers sources of bank liability. It examines claims which may be made against banks as a result of loans made to corporate customers, especially where the bank has to intervene in some way to protect its interests in a facility that is becoming impaired. It also looks at the position of banks as sellers of sophisticated and complex products, such as collateralized debt obligations, credit default swaps, and similar instruments. By their very nature, these instruments will be sold to larger corporate customers with considerable financial resources.
