Understanding The Isda Master Agreements Singapore

„Laxology is a useful and informative tool. I keep copies of relevant articles and often pass them on to my colleagues. Although I do not know all the authors/companies, by reading their articles I gain an understanding of their appreciation of a topic, and if necessary, I would not hesitate to contact them on these topics. „International Swaps and Derivatives Association, www.isda.org/membership/, ISDA has more than 900 member institutions from 69 countries. The ISDA Master Agreement, published by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, is the most widely used master service agreement for OTC derivatives trading internationally. It is part of a documentary framework designed to enable comprehensive and flexible documentation of OTC derivatives. The framework consists of a framework contract, a timetable, confirmations, definition brochures and credit support documentation.

The framework agreement is a document agreed between two parties that establishes standard conditions applicable to all transactions concluded between these parties.

Whenever a transaction is concluded, the terms of the framework contract do not have to be renegotiated and apply automatically. This concept of an individual contract is an integral part of the structure and part of the compensation-based protection offered by the Framework Agreement. The fact that all transactions are the only contract enhances the ability to enter into those transactions and obtain a single net amount to be paid in the event of default. Together with the schedule, the framework contract sets out all the general conditions necessary for the proper allocation of the risks of the transactions between the parties, but does not contain conditions specific to a given transaction. Once the framework agreement is concluded, the parties can conclude many transactions by granting the main terms of sale by telephone, as evidenced by written confirmation, without the need to re-examine the underlying terms of the framework agreement. . . .
