Hello Myles,

In a contract for differences, the divergence in the agreement usually takes place by paying cash instead of delivering the physical assets.
The returns to your investments may be equal to the value of the underlying asset. This is what attracts most CFD investors.
 However, this margin trades may not only result in profits, but at times you can make losses. An indicator that though CFDs are an acceptable form of investment, they are also prone to risks. One such chance is the Counterparty risk. 
A counterpart is a corporation that gives resources in any monetary dealing when vending a CFD, the contract that the CFD contributor issues are the only asset in that dealing. 
This reveals the trader to other counterparties of the provider. These counterparties may include other clients who conduct business with the provider.
The risk associated with this is the counterparty risk. Here, the counterparty declines to meet the financial obligation.
Whenever the provider fails to execute the financial obligations, the utility of the essential asset is irrelevant.
