Using the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy as a cautionary tale from which valuable lessons can be learned about over-the-counter derivative transactions, PLI’s Terminating Derivative Transactions: Risk Mitigation and Close-Out Netting is a necessary corrective to the negative outcry against these ”financial weapons of mass destruction,” as Warren Buffet has termed them.
Terminating Derivative Transactions explains the legitimate purposes of these transactions, how they can work for the parties involved when they are properly structured, and how these transactions can be terminated in ways that minimize the damage to the parties and to the global financial system.
Terminating Derivative Transactions defines the key terminology; identifies the major players; discusses the full range of documentation; and highlights risk mitigation techniques and best practices that can minimize risks. It examines the termination events and events of default that can trigger the early termination of OTC derivative transactions; the process of closing out these deals; and the process of calculating the early termination amounts due the parties under the transactions.
Updated annually or as needed, Terminating Derivative Transactions: Risk Mitigation and Close-Out Netting is must reading for every participant involved in structuring derivative products.
