CDOs: Scenario 1:
      CDOs are owned by banks (and only banks); CDOs are not directly connected to each other.
     Scenario 2:
      CDOs can be owned by banks or other CDOs; CDOs are connected to each other.

This visualization aims to demonstrate hypothetical relationship between banks and CDOs and the impact of failing CDOs on the financial sector.

  • Click on a bank to see how many CDOs it owns. The ownership of a CDO by a bank is denoted by a gray link between two circles or nodes.
  • If more than X percent of a bank's CDOs fail, the bank will fail.
  • Define X:

    0 %

    Identify bank(s) related to
    CDO links.
  • The shortest path between
    CDO(s) and
