After the referendum, EU exit is on the short-term agenda - with new trade deals being the subsequent objective. This has made me very curious. I've realised that, while the text of the EU treaties are available, I've not read another any other documents relating to international trade deals. I assume that the extent and variety of trade deals must be extensive... (Isn't this what thousands of diplomats have focused upon for decades?) So, my cheeky question is this: How many different trade deals are published - and where can I find the agreements that codify them? While this may seem as if it is about to veer off topic, I am especially interested in establishing the international rules relating to the sale of asset backed securities and bonds arising from structured credit. I am aware, for example that European Securitization is an EU initiative - one that contributed to the excesses that led to 2008. What is the overlap between foreign indirect investment; trade-deals and (structured) credit?
