OTC-Derivaten en de ISDA Master Agreement - (hoe) werkt het naar Nederlands recht? (deel 1)

23.10.2017 NL law

De meeste over-the-counter (OTC) derivaten worden aangegaan onder een ISDA Master Agreement. Eén van de voornaamste doelen van de Master Agreement is de beheersing van het kredietrisico dat partijen over en weer op elkaar lopen. De bepalingen betreffende vervroegde beëindiging en afwikkeling van transacties behoren tot de kernbepalingen van de Master Agreement.

Ondanks een rechtskeuze voor Engels recht of het recht van de Staat New York valt niet uit te sluiten dat de Nederlandse rechter Nederlands recht zal toepassen bij de beoordeling van de Master Agreement, met name in insolventiescenario’s. In beginsel doet Nederlands recht geen afbreuk aan de werking van de bepalingen van de Master Agreement betreffende vervroegde beëindiging en afwikkeling van transacties. Er zijn wel enkele aandachtspunten die voor partijen van belang kunnen zijn.
