Financial Law Reform

Financial Law Reform covers a range of legal and legislative developments at global, regional and national level that affect trading in OTC derivatives. It is the ISDA forum that discusses and drafts ISDA submissions on matters ranging from laws on insolvency (netting, set-off, recovery and resolution) and property (collateral) to more general securities law matters as well as a wide range of private international law matters to various national, regional (eg EU) and global (eg UNIDROIT, UNCITRAL, Hague Conference on Private International Law) entities.
