Derivatives Industry attempts to revive liquidity in the market for single-name credit default swaps has been given the seal of approval from industry body, ISDA.
The association today recommended an amendment to the frequency of rolls for single-name CDS that will bring the instruments closer in line with the more liquid index CDS market.
Under the current convention, participants roll into new on-the-run contracts every quarter and the latest recommendation would see contracts rolled on a semi-annual basis — in March and September.
Given the bilateral nature of CDS contracts there is no requirement for industry participants to adopt the new roll proposals. The change, however, is one that many dealers have been calling for in an attempt to revive trading in a product that has faced a series of headwinds and forced some high-profile dealers to exit the business.
A shift from the quarterly convention, which reflects IMM futures expiries, to the semi-annual convention of index CDS could see roll revenues slashed. But most are expected to embrace the change as it should be accompanied by a reduction in capital charges.
Fewer rolls means a reduction in the number of legacy contracts sitting on dealer balance sheets. While many see the shift as a key factor in building liquidity, some note that a reduction in roll date frequency could force bond investors to buy longer-dated instruments than required for hedging their cash bond exposures.
ISDA proposes a potential go-live date of December 20 for the changes and is working with market participants to determine whether to propose changes for legacy transactions. Post-crisis slump Single-name CDS volumes have tanked since the financial crisis.
The decline stems in part from the death of the synthetic CDO market that was a primary driver behind the pre-crisis boom in volumes.
But other factors have also played a part: However, with the Federal Reserve expected to embark on its first rate hikes in almost a decade this September, many believe that the instruments could become increasingly attractive once again.
Dealers also hope that aligning the roll dates with index CDS will smooth the path towards central clearing of the instruments. Asset managers have been reluctant to clear single-name CDS, particularly in Europe where there is no regulatory requirement.This single-ply product is as effective as most 2-ply products.
And I believe it is. you must also find the cost per roll. In this example, I will use a no-name brand, in a large box. We'll call it TPerfection, which comes in a box of 96 rolls for $ There, you can alter the shipping dates and frequency of the shipping dates.
