The framework agreement allows the parties to calculate their financial risk from OTC transactions on a net basis, i.e. a party calculates the difference between what it owes to a counterparty under a framework agreement and what the counterparty owes it under the same agreement. Compensation. The rights of set-off are similar and are generally provided for in the ISDA Agreement. The concepts of set-off or set-off refer to the right of the solvent party to deduct or contractually deduct the net amount it owes to the insolvent party under the ISDA Agreement, which occurs after the application of the close-out set-off, together with all other amounts due by the insolvent party to the solvent party, or vice versa. Assuming that the solvent party owes the insolvent bank a net sum of USD 20 in accordance with the ISDA Agreement and the insolvent bank owes usd 30 to the solvent party for a transaction other than the ISDA Agreement. The right of set-off under the ISDA agreement would contractually allow the solvent party to deduct the USD 20 it owes to the insolvent bank from the USD 30 that the insolvent bank owes to the solvent party, with the result that the insolvent bank owes USD10 to the solvent party. This judgment focuses on the set-off provisions of the 1992 ISDA Framework Agreement (Multicurrency – Cross Border) and their relationship to the contractual set-off provision used by the parties in this case.

But even if you have a clearing master`s contract, also check whether your own company`s operational systems are able to identify multi-process clearing agreements as a practical matter.
From his own experience, the JC suspects that many are not. If computers can`t, your CPMA and online opinions are as good as a chocolate star. But cross affiliation compensation is certainly a nice rum deal. As a general rule, clearing requires reciprocity of payment, currency, time and consideration, which in any case makes it possible to dispute the compensation between related companies (unless you have cross-agreements). And in these modern times of bank recovery and resolution, the combination of claims between supposedly isolated and independent companies is not really the thing. The Tribunal decided that the alleged right of set-off invoked by UBS was subject to section 553(a) of the Bankruptcy Act, which states: Friends, it is difficult to see how. If it is a pledge or security interest and there is a deficit in your portfolio, it is an additional lest if you wish, but it cannot alter the rights of the agent if he wishes to apply other excesses of security to your deficit. And if you have a surplus, what is there to do? If it is mortgaged by a transfer of ownership, this could (if it is) adjust the calculation of insolvency compensation, but certainly in a way that will result in your risk as it is better covered than less well covered.
