New ISDA Documentation and Protocols: Getting Ready for Margining Conference

24 Nov 2016

London, United Kingdom

Morrison & Foerster Partner Vladimir Maly will be giving two talks at the New ISDA Documentation and Protocols: Getting Ready for Margining Conference in London.

The two sessions will cover:

  • Variation Margin Requirements: March 2017 marks the date when most in-scope firms will first have to comply with margin rules. These firms will be subject to variation margin requirements from that date. This session will run through the requirements that will apply under the US and EU rules.
  • ISDA 2016 Variation Margin CSAs and New Collateral Documentation Architecture: In 2016 ISDA published three new forms of Credit Support Annex to allow parties to document regulation-compliant terms for the exchange of variation margin. These documents also recognise the potential for a new documentation architecture involving multiple CSAs under a single Master Agreement. This session will examine this new structure and highlight the changes in the new Variation Margin CSAs from the CSAs that ISDA previously published.
