Structured Products and Other

Reflecting the hybrid nature of structured products, ISDA often works jointly with securities-focused trade associations on issues that transcend wholesale and retail markets. The forum for this work is the Joint Associations Committee on Retail Structured Products (JAC), chaired by Tim Hailes of JP Morgan.
