NEW YORK - Publicly disclosed losses attributed to derivatives have grown to $10 billion since the market's inception a decade ago, a new report says.
Tanya Styblo Beder, co-principal of Capital Market Risk Advisors, wrote recently that pension and mutual funds alone have racked up $1.7 billion in losses since January.
She estimates the notional size of the derivatives market at $37 trillion.
Of that total, $22 trillion is in over-the-counter instruments such as swaps, caps, floors, forwards, and options.
