Purpose Of 2002 Isda Master Agreement Protocol

How can I encourage a counterparty to sign the 2002 Framework Protocol? Does participation in the 2002 Framework Protocol affect the 1992 ISDA Framework Contracts? No no. This Protocol is distinct from and independent of any other ISDA Protocol. Whether or not a Party complies with another ISDA Protocol is not important for the purposes of this Protocol. At the time, ISDA expected that the 2002 agreement would be quickly taken over by North American institutions for the new counterparts, but that progress would be slower in Europe and Asia. Just in case, it was quite slow everywhere. There is a limited compliance period to ensure that the parties (as well as the union) have a certain degree of certainty and certainty. The limited compliance period should also encourage market participants to consider the issues addressed in the Protocol earlier rather than later, in order to support the proper functioning and efficiency of OTC derivatives markets. Since the Protocol is forward-looking and allows a Contracting Party to address problems, including with regard to the 2002 framework agreements it has concluded at any time with other Contracting Parties, it is not necessary to maintain the open compliance period indefinitely. Beyond the themes addressed, what is unique about the 2002 Framework Protocol is that it is forward-looking. All previous ISDA protocols were designed to make only amendments to the systems contracts (or, in one case, solvent supporting documents) already concluded between the parties. The new protocol would be of limited use if it did not do more than that, because the universe of Masters performed in 2002 remains relatively small. The protocol therefore looks to the future and takes into account both the fact that some market players have not yet completed their master`s degree in 2002 and the fact that those who have already obtained a master`s degree in 2002 will receive more in the future.

Three other provisions that have been supported and objected to are the revised definition of the specified transaction to include non-derivatives such as securities deposits and loans; the inclusion of refusal in the case of an infringement; and the aggregation language in the default cross determination [section 5(a)(vi)] for threshold purposes. Some major North American and European banks introduced the 2002 agreement as an agreement of their choice with new counterparties. . . .
