The internal model used for the Master Compensation Agreement approach should not be changed1 unless the change is not substantial. For significant changes to such a model, a variation of the internal compensation agreement must be required. The importance is measured against the model as it was at the time conceptual approval of internal compensation agreements was initially granted or, at a later date, defined in the control compensation agreement, to reconcile the approval of internal models for this purpose. When a company is considering making substantial changes to such a model, it must at the same time notify the relevant regulator. For master-clearing agreements that recognize pension transactions and/or loan or credit transactions of securities or commodities and/or other securities and/or capital loan or credit transactions1 for BIPRU 5 purposes, an entity must calculate the net position in any currency other than the settlement currency of the main clearing agreement, based on the total value of the principal clearing agreement; securities sold or declared under the main clearing agreement, which are added to the amount of cash borrowed or transferred in that currency under the agreement, the total value of the securities denominated in that currency, lent, sold or received under the agreement, up to cash received or received under the agreement, in cash in that currency, recorded or received under the agreement. The framework agreement and timetable define the reasons why one party may impose the closure of covered transactions due to the appearance of a termination event by the other party. Standard termination events include defaults or bankruptcy. Other closing events that can be added to the calendar include a downgrade of credit data below a specified level. Efx is the net position (positive or negative) in a given currency, with the exception of the currency clearing the agreement, calculated in accordance with BIPRU 5.6.8 R; When calculating the exposure amounts weighted according to the internal approach of the master compensation agreement model, an entity must use the model version of the previous business day.
The internal model used for the master compensation agreement approach1 must meet the requirements set out in BIPRU 13.6.65 R to BIPRU 13.6.67 R. An ISDA master contract is the standard document that is regularly used to regulate over-the-counter derivatives transactions. The agreement, published by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA), outlines the conditions to be applied to a derivatives transaction between two parties, usually to a derivatives trader and counterparty. The master contract of the ISDA itself is the norm, but it is accompanied by a bespoke timetable and sometimes an annex to support the credit, both signed by both parties in a given transaction. As part of the net tally, counterparties add up the net amount owed under all contracts under the master compensation contract. The counterparty that owes money is required to settle its debts by a one-time payment in one currency to the other counterparty. Contracts normally include derivative financial instruments, including futures, options, swaps, convertible bonds and other contracts whose derivative value comes from the value of a related underlying security, as part of a master netting agreement.
