International Swaps and Derivatives
Represents participants in the privately negotiated derivatives
industry, is the largest global financial trade association, by
number of member firms. ISDA was chartered in 1985, and today
has over 750 member institutions from 52 countries on six
continents. These members include most of the world's major
institutions that deal in privately negotiated derivatives, as
well as many of the businesses, governmental entities and other
end users that rely on over-the-counter derivatives to manage
efficiently the financial market risks inherent in their core
economic activities. Since its inception, ISDA has pioneered
efforts to identify and reduce the sources of risk in the
derivatives and risk management business. Among its most notable
accomplishments are: developing the ISDA Master Agreement;
publishing a wide range of related documentation materials and
instruments covering a variety of transaction types; producing
legal opinions on the enforceability of netting and collateral
arrangements (available only to ISDA members); securing
recognition of the risk-reducing effects of netting in
determining capital requirements; promoting sound risk
management practices, and advancing the understanding and
treatment of derivatives and risk management from public policy
and regulatory capital perspectives.
