Sample text

A credit asset is the extension of credit in some form: normally a loan, accounts receivable, installment credit, or financial lease contract.

This expectation is quite logical, since the quotes in the case of cash settlement are made by potential buyers of defaulted assets, who also hope to make a profit in buying the defaulted asset.
