Finally some clarity ... see what Kelle Gagné from Edward Nathan Sonnenberg has to say by clicking on this link above.
Whilst the South African market continues to wait for the margin rules for uncleared otc derivatives to be finalised and published by the regulator, it is not too soon to start thinking about how to bring your collateral agreements up to date and in line with regulatory requirements.
ISDA published the variation margin-compliant CSA (2016 VM CSA) and it is anticipated that this document will be used in the South African market to ensure compliance with the margin rules.
