ISDA Webinar: "Cross-Border Representations on ISDA Amend"

In July, the CFTC published an “Interpretive Guidance and Policy Statement Regarding Compliance with Certain Swap Regulations” providing guidance as to when the CFTC will assert jurisdiction over swap transactions that have a non-U.S. element. ISDA published a Cross-Border Swaps Representation Letter in August. The letter allows market participants to provide counterparties with status representations needed to determine whether compliance is required. This webinar discusses the contents of the Representation Letter as well as how the Representation Letter will appear on ISDA Amend, featuring Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, ISDA and Markit.
