ISDA 32nd Annual General Meeting - Lisbon
ISDA, the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, is holding it's 32nd Annual General Meeting on May 9th, 2017. ISDA’s pioneering work in developing the ISDA Master Agreement and a wide range of related documentation materials, and in ensuring the enforceability of their netting and collateral provisions, has helped to significantly reduce credit and legal risk. The Association has been a leader in promoting sound risk management practices and processes, and engages constructively with policymakers and legislators around the world to advance the understanding and treatment of derivatives as a risk management tool.
Partner Jeffrey Robins will be speaking on the panel entitled 30th Anniversary of the ISDA Master Agreement: Evolution of Key Industry Documentation. The panel will discuss the evolution of standard derivatives documentation, including the factors leading to the success of standard forms, threats to the standard over its life, and future outlook.
