comment What concepts are the most dangerous ones in quantitative finance work?
Actually, we can turn this argument on its head. We can profit from the fact that correlation vanishes during a crisis, by selling correlation to the street. Fact is because many retail investors don't want to choose specific assets in an asset class, they tend to buy baskets. Since they also want capital protection, they tend to buy options on those baskets. Writing these options takes the street short the correlation of the basket elements, and they're happy to pay up to buy it back at (usually expensive) levels, which is what many Hedge Fund traders do through dual binaries and such like.
