The market for credit derivatives--financial instruments designed to transfer credit risk from one party to another--has grown exponentially in recent years, with volume expected to reach more than $4.8 trillion by 2004. With demand increasing from the private sector for finance professionals trained in the opportunities--and dangers--inherent in this fast-changing market, finance courses are already springing up to meet this need.
