Guests: Satyajiy Das is back by popular demand. We get more emails from listeners requesting Das than you can believe. Maybe it is his factual accounts of what is really going on behind the scenes in Europe that has us all listening to his advice. On this episode, we talk about Italy, France and Greece as the central issues we need to watch closely.
A planned bailout for Cyprus, the fifth euro-area country to seek external aid, may contain a debt target of about 100 percent of gross domestic target in 2020, three European Union officials said on condition of anonymity because the talks are private.
Satyajit Das has worked in financial derivatives, risk management, and capital markets for over 30+ years.
Since 1994, Mr. Das has acted as a consultant to financial institutions and corporations in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. Previously, between 1977 and 1994, Mr. Das worked on the ‘sell side’ (Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Citicorp Investment Bank and Merrill Lynch) and the ‘buy side’ (Treasurer of the TNT Group, an Australian based international transport and logistics company).
Das is the author of a number of key reference works on derivatives and risk management. His works include Swaps/ Financial Derivatives Library – Third Edition (2005, John Wiley & Sons) (a 4 volume 4,200 page reference work for practitioners on derivatives) and Credit Derivatives, CDOs and Structured Credit Products –Third Edition (2005, John Wiley & Sons). He is the author of Traders, Guns & Money: Knowns and Unknowns in the Dazzling World of Derivatives (2006, FT-Prentice Hall), an insider’s account of derivatives trading and the financial products business filled with black humor and satire. The book has been described by the Financial Times, London as ” fascinating reading … explaining not only the high-minded theory behind the business and its various products but the sometimes sordid reality of the industry”.
He is also the author (with Jade Novakovic) of In Search of the Pangolin: The Accidental Eco-Tourist (2006, New Holland), an unique narrative offering passionate and often poignant insights into the natural world and the culture of eco-travel.
