What are counterparties, is there a risk?

Counterparties are third parties, often investment banks, who are involved with the ETP. For example, a counterparty might be an institution providing a "swap" derivative, borrowing a stock or issuing an ETN. If a counterparty ran into financial difficulties, there is a chance that the ETP could lose money, cease trading temporarily or be wound up altogether.
