This thesis discusses portfolio credit derivatives which offer rating migration protection on a portfolio of assets. Credit rating migrations are interesting, both from an originator's and an investor's point of view. After discussing the possibilities and problems of expressing a view on rating migration through default-sensitive instruments, we introduce a new portfolio credit derivative. Applications and payoff examples are provided, as well as a chapter on the modelling and pricing of the product.
