Investors and corporates are poised to increase their use of over-the-counter derivatives in Asia as more products become available for hedging and risk management, according to a survey conducted by Celent and commissioned by ISDA. The survey found that in 2012, annual turnover in OTC derivatives in Asia hit $186 trillion, a significant increase from 2009 and 2010. "OTC derivatives are and will remain vital risk-management and hedging tools for corporations, investment managers, governments," ISDA Chairman Stephen O'Connor said.
