Naked Credit Default Swap Definition
Friday, October 4, 4:06 PM ET

Referencing our definition of credit default swaps, one of the two parties holds a loan and effectively wants to insure it against default. The second party provides that insurance, for a price.

When the word "Naked" is placed in front of "credit default swap" that describes a scenario where the first party doesn't actually hold the loan, but seeks the insurance on it anyway.

The result is a form of speculation that the company who issued the loan in question might default or the risk of default might rise. In a scenario where default appears to be more likely, the value of an insurance policy against default will rise, creating gains for the speculator.
