BaFin Short Selling Restrictions
  • On 25 May 2010 ISDA co-hosted a call with Allen & Overy to provide further detail on the draft law circulated by the German Finance Minister. The law would broaden the rules imposed by way of BaFin decrees last week and include prohibition of naked short selling of eurozone currency derivatives. A copy of the English translation of the draft law is available here. A recording of the call on May 25 is available here.

  • On 19 May 2010 ISDA co-hosted a call with Allen & Overy to discuss the decrees published by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht) (BaFin) regarding short selling and so-called “naked” CDS.

    A summary, prepared by Allen & Overy, of the key issues discussed on the call, updated following subsequent discussion with BaFin, is available here. A recording of the presentation section of the call is available here. Please note that some matters discussed on the call have been superseded following subsequent discussions with BaFin. We believe that the recording will still be helpful for members as an overview of the issues, but it should be supplemented by reading the summary.
