THIS COURSE IS PART 1 OF A TWO PART COURSE, THE SECOND PART IS TITLED “NEGOTIATING ISDA MASTER AGREEMENTS”. It is highly recommended that participants attend Part 2 of this course after attending this Part 1 as the content in Part 2 is a follow up from Part 1 and covers all the salient issues related to ISDA documentation that can not be covered in Part 1 due to time contraints.
Part 1 of this ISDA Documentation course provides full coverage of the important aspects of derivatives trading. It is relevant for in-house lawyers and private practice lawyers alike, traders and bankers involved in complex structuring involving swaps, ISDA documentation teams, operations teams that book ISDA trades, compliance personnel responsible for ensuring that all regulations relating to ISDA transactions are complied with as well as accountants who advise clients on swap transactions.
The first part of this ISDA Documentation course sets the scene by giving an introduction to derivatives; what they are, why they are used, who uses them and how they are traded. We then go through the various types of derivative products in the market showing the potential of the use of derivatives in a wide range of product sectors. We also cover the claims for mis-selling of swaps under and the relevant claims and case law under English law.
The second part of the ISDA Documentation course covers the workings of the derivatives market and the trade association, ISDA. We then go through the ISDA documentation framework including coverage of the ancillary ISDA documentation. We then cover the pertinent issues in ISDA documented trades such as netting, mark to market valuations, negative interest rates, events of default and early termination to name a few. We will then discuss how to document derivatives in loan transactions and cover some English law cases.
The third part of the course will cover the upcoming EU regulatory changes effecting derivatives with a timeline on what to expect when. We will go through how the banks and law firms should prepare for such changes with practical guidance where appropriate.
Additionally, we will also cover off some of the more pertinent US regulatory changes that will impact derivatives trading in the UK. Please note that this section is subject to change depending on the time of the year this training course is delivered as per the regulations and guidance that are published from time to time.
