The Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation has published what is perhaps the first comprehensive official numbers on the global credit default swap market including the top 1000 reference names. The top 1000 names accounts for over 95% of the market by gross notional value and a little less than 90% by net notional value. Entry into this list is a measure of how important an entity is in global fixed income markets, but this is not a list that entities are eager to get into (many of the top names on this list are shaky sovereigns and shakier financials!).
I could spot four Indian entities in this list (ICICI, Reliance Industries, State Bank of India and Corus) in the middle of the list (ICICI is actually in the top 500). The top Indian names also serve as sovereign proxies and therefore the numbers must be interpreted with some care.
