Supply and demand of placed risk positions by banks, especially in connection with loans in leveraged buyouts and securitizations. Triggered primarily by the subprime crisis, this market has expanded considerably; and the individual instruments of risk transfer have also multiplied (since the subprime crisis the range of CRT instruments and the circumstances in which they are used have widened significantly). In the meantime, credit risk transfer has become a field of its own. – See Assets, illiquid, Collateralized debt obligations. – Cf.
