Isda Collateral Agreement Interest Rate Definitions Version 1.0

The second version contains slightly modified versions of these definitions as well as definitions of CORRA (collateral rate), saron (collateral rate), SONIA (collateral rate), HONIA (collateral rate), TONA (collateral rate), SORA (collateral rate) and SOFR (collateral rate). If the parties wish to apply the version of the security game definitions from time to time, they may expressly provide for this in the safeguard clause. The parties may also use the overwriting mechanism contained in the definitions of the elements of the security phrase. The transfer mechanism may be applied either at a specific interest rate or at all interest rates. When the suspension mechanism is applied, the case returns contained in the latest version of the definitions of the security phrase shall be applied regardless of when the safeguard contract was performed. The reform of two widespread interest rate markets is taking place on the euro market. The interest rates that are subject to these reforms are the €STR, first published on 2 October 2019, the interest rate that reflects the cost of credit of euro area banks on the uninsured wholesale market of daily transactions and produced by the European Central Bank. For a number of reasons summarized in the table below, ISDA considers the interest rate to be more accurate and robust than EONIA: definitions of collateral rate were developed by ISDA as part of efforts to shift markets from interbank supply rates („IBORs“) to risk-free alternative interest rates (RFRS) and broader benchmark reforms. General information on IBOR tuning and RFR development can be found in our previous briefing „Buy-side perspective: IBOR transition and derivatives“. In particular, undertakings should take into account the commercial impact of possible changes in their interest rates on cash guarantees, including the possibility of transferring economic value resulting from a change in the prevailing interest rate.
