AIMA APAC Webinar: 2021 ISDA Definitions: A Quantum Leap Forward for Interest Rate Derivatives – What Asset Managers Need to Know

Hong Kong Singapore China Japan Hong Kong Australia Other Markets Regulation

AIMA APAC invites you to join our webinar on 2021 ISDA interest rate derivatives definitions: held on 18 October 2021.

In a letter sent to AIMA and other associations earlier this month, Scott O’Malia, Chief Executive of ISDA, highlighted that the new definitions are "a quantum leap forward" and were “significantly driven by a desire to provide buyside and corporate end users with a better outcome in the derivatives market”.

On this call we will provide an overview of the upcoming ISDA documentation and highlight the key differences between the 2021 ISDA Definitions and the 2006 ISDA Definitions. Significant changes relevant to fund and asset managers, including changes to the Calculation Agent standard and methodologies, new cash settlement methods and IBOR fallbacks relating to IBOR transition efforts will be discussed. This joint webinar also highlights the practical steps that asset managers should take to start transitioning to the 2021 ISDA Definitions.
