FAQ: 2014 ISDA Credit Derivatives Definitions Protocol and Implementation for Emerging Market Regions

Previous communications from ISDA regarding implementation of the 2014 ISDA Credit Derivatives Definitions (the “2014 Definitions”) have indicated that the 2014 Definitions would not apply via a Protocol to existing transactions on sovereign and financial Reference Entities, and so those transactions would remain on the 2003 ISDA Credit Derivatives Definitions (the “2003 Definitions”). Based on member feedback during the consultation phase on the draft Protocol, an alternative approach has been requested for certain emerging market regions. This change has implications for existing transactions as at September 22, 2014 (“Legacy Transactions”) and new trades from that date forward (“New Transactions”). (Updated August 21, 2014)
