YACP: Episode 2

leave a comment »

My second installment of “Yet Another CDO Primer” is up after a long hiatus of tech watching (I’m looking at you Google Wave). It explains why lenders and investors liked CDOs in the first place and shows how PPIP is basically a CDO structure. It builds on the first episode, so if you are completely new to finance, you might want to watch that first. Enjoy!

Yet Another CDO Primer

leave a comment »

There are plenty of primers on the Interweb regarding the current financial crisis and structured products. Nevertheless, sometimes things just don’t hit you where you live, for whatever reason (maybe the primer had too many graphics, not enough graphics, not enough context, too much background, whatever). Here’s my attempt at “Yet Another CDO Primer” that, hopefully, even my mom will understand.
