By Dr. Nick Skrekas, International Lawyer, Financial Analyst and Author
Swaps and derivatives have become more and more complex and have come under closer regulatory scrutiny as their notional values exceeds even the combined world GDP. As the range of users and applications of swaps and derivatives increase, so the legal and documentation problems become more difficult and require ever-more sophisticated techniques.
In this seminar you will learn the law, finance and how to negotiate the 1992 and 2002 ISDA Master Agreements as well as their Schedules. These documents have become the de facto global standard for the global OTC derivatives trade with a notional value of above $700 Trillion. It is estimated that 90% for all OTC derivatives are documented by the ISDA Master Agreement framework so it vital to master this documentation.
