Isda Master Swap Agreement

Over-the-counter derivatives are mainly used for security purposes. For example, a company can protect itself against unfavourable movements at medium- or long-term interest rates by taking out an interest rate swap to „block“ a fixed interest rate for a period of time. Over-the-counter derivatives can also be used for speculation. The most important thing is to remember that the ISDA executive contract is a clearing agreement and that all transactions are interdependent. Therefore, a default in a transaction counts by default among all transactions. Point 1 (c) describes the concept of a single agreement and is of paramount importance as it forms the basis for network closures. When a standard event occurs, all transactions are completed without exception. The concept of out-of-gap clearing prevents a liquidator from making „cherry pickings,“ i.e. making payments on profitable transactions for his bankrupt client and refusing to do so in the case of an unprofitable customer. The Captain`s Agreement is a document agreed between two parties, which sets standard conditions for all transactions between these parties. Each time a transaction is concluded, the terms of the framework agreement should not be renegotiated and applied automatically. The isda masteragrement is a framework agreement that defines the terms and conditions between parties wishing to trade over-the-counter derivatives. There are two main versions that are still widely used on the market: the 1992 ISDA Master Agreement (Multicurrency – Cross Border) and the 2002 ISDA Master Agreement.

The framework agreement and timetable define the reasons why one party may impose the closure of covered transactions due to the appearance of a termination event by the other party. Standard termination events include defaults or bankruptcy. Other closing events that can be added to the calendar include a downgrade of credit data below a specified level. The parties try to limit this responsibility by including „unconfident“ representations in their agreements, so that each party does not rely on the other and makes its own independent decisions.
