2011 ISDA Equity Derivatives Definitions

ISDA published today the 2011 ISDA Equity Derivatives Definitions (the "2011 Definitions").

The 2011 Definitions are more than a simple update of the 2002 ISDA Equity Derivatives Definitions (the "2002 Definitions"). They represent a new approach to the documentation of derivatives transactions.

The 2011 Definitions use an innovative open modular approach to the construction and documentation of equity derivative transactions. Considerable additional functionality has also been added in the 2011 Definitions compared to the 2002 Definitions.

Linklaters acted as lead counsel on the 2011 Definitions. To learn more click here for a briefing note and FAQs introducing the new documentation architecture for equity derivatives transaction and the key new concepts and risk allocation provisions in the 2011 Definitions.
