Over the last two years, the international financial markets have experienced severe disruptions caused by different factors that have been already analysed by regulators worldwide. There has been however a factor of general discussion regarding the impact that credit derivatives have had in transferring and diversifying risk within the global financial market. As a consequence, regulators are now trying to reach a set of proposals that would help in avoiding any future disruptions caused by the use of these financial instruments. The main focus of this dissertation is on the analysis of the new regulatory proposals on counterparty credit risk for credit derivatives in the EU and the main challenges that market participants will have to face after these regulations are implemented.
