ISDA General Disclosure Statement for Transactions

The ISDA General Disclosure Statement for Transactions describes generally: (1) the material characteristics of a wide variety of derivative transactions that we may conduct with you; (2) the material risks of such transactions; and (3) typical material incentives and conflicts of interest that we may have with respect to such transactions.  The ISDA General Disclosure Statement for Transactions is supplemented with more product specific disclosures contained in annexes, including the ISDA Disclosure Annex for Credit Derivative Transactions.  For Credit Derivative Transactions, the ISDA General Disclosure Statement for Transactions should be read in conjunction with the ISDA Disclosure Annex for Credit Derivative Transactions.

ISDA Disclosure Annex for Credit Derivatie Transactions

The ISDA Disclosure Annex for Credit Derivative Transactions supplements and should be read in conjunction with the ISDA General Disclosure Statement for Transactions. NOTHING IN THE ISDA DISCLOSURE ANNEX FOR CREDIT DERIVATIVE TRANSACTIONS AMENDS OR SUPERSEDES THE EXPRESS TERMS OF ANY TRANSACTION BETWEEN YOU AND US OR ANY RELATED GOVERNING DOCUMENTATION. Accordingly, descriptions in the ISDA Disclosure Annex for Credit Derivative Transactions of the operation of Credit Derivative Transactions and the consequences of various events are in all cases subject to the actual terms of an Credit Derivative Transaction executed between you and us and its governing documentation.
