Understanding the ISDA Margin Protocol for Commercial Entities

Beginning March 1, 2017, uncleared swaps will be subject to margin requirements under rules adopted in the US and other G-20 nations. ISDA has published documentation designed to help market participants comply with these regulations and will soon open its protocol allowing market participants to enter into compliant documentation online. This process will require market participants to make many decisions that have legal, operational, and economic consequences.

Our speakers played a central role in the development of the ISDA margin documentation and protocols. Please join us for a discussion focused specifically on considerations for commercial entities that may be swap dealers or financial end users, including margin classification tasks, defining an approach to documentation, and keys to simplifying use of the protocol.
