See www.isda.org/a/6EjEE/3431552_40ISDA-2018-U.S.-Resolution final of the stay.pdf protocol. In the fall of 2017, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency have adopted new rules as part of their ongoing efforts to address the problem of “too-big-to-fail”1 New rules require that global systemically important banking organizations, as designated by the Banking Stability Basel Committee and the Financial Stability Committee, the subsidiaries of GSIBs in the United States (including state-owned banks and non-members and public savings banks and most of their subsidiaries), national banks or federal associations of savings companies with a fortune of more than $700 billion , as well as U.S. subsidiaries, branches or agencies of non-U.S. GSIBs (grouped companies) 2 modifying certain types of financial contracts, including securities contracts, swaps and other types of derivatives, reverse pension and pension agreements and securities lending contracts (eligible financial contracts or QFCs) provide for provisions that limit, in certain circumstances, the termination and other default rights of their counterparties and allow, in certain circumstances, the allocation of these QFCs or related credit assistance agreements. Together, we call these rules the QFC rules. While some contracts, such as exchange contracts and pension contracts, clearly fall within the definition of a CFQ, the term is broad enough to encompass many types of agreements that are not normally considered derivatives. The ancillary provisions contained in some agreements may lead to them being defined. Types of agreements that need to be carefully considered against the parties include interprofessional master agreements (which allow transactions from different branches of a company, some of which are not covered companies), investment management agreements, premium brokerage agreements, deposit agreements, correspondence agreements, guarantee agreements, guarantee agreements, trust agreements, trust agreements, etc. With the implementation of the U.S. Stay Final Rules resolution, end-users must modify some of their derivatives and other financial contracts with global systemically important banking organizations (GSIBs). The manner in which these changes are made, whether it is a branch protocol or a bilateral agreement, can lead to significant differences in the ability of end-users to exercise their insolvent payment rights.
The U.S. Protocol is also separate from the ISDA Refloated Protocol of Article 55 of the BRRD Protocol, which also provides for contractual recognition of the application of certain non-U.S. reimbursement and settlement systems, some (but not all) of which are also covered by the U.S. protocol. Compliance with a module of the JMP protocol or BRRD protocol remains effective without modification, regardless of compliance with the US protocol. Here are some of the main differences between the creditor protection provisions contained in the 2018 Protocol and those in the final rules (as in the case of the use of a bilateral amendment agreement): the U.S. resolution rules do not require: that the QFCs covered includes certain “crossdefault” provisions if the QFC (i) does not explicitly provide for a standard fee for the covered QFC, directly or indirectly related to the fact that a member of the insured party is bankrupt and (ii) does not explicitly prohibit the transfer of credit enhancements (for example. B guarantees or guarantees) provided by a company linked to the support of a QFC whose party is the debtor. As a result, the provisions of Section 2 of the U.S. Protocol Annex (Section 2) generally do not apply to ISDA master contracts and credit support documents that meet these conditions.
