External Business Conduct - Credit

The standard form Master Credit Derivatives Confirmation Agreements (as supplemented by the relevant Reference Documents) that can be accessed via the links below contain market standard material terms for credit derivatives transactions ("Static Terms"). If you have previously entered into a Master Credit Derivatives Confirmation Agreement, Standard Terms Supplement or other pre-agreed economic terms with us in respect of the particular product you intend to trade, please refer to that agreement or those terms for the Static Terms. The relevant Static Terms will be supplemented by transaction-specific material terms to be communicated to you prior to trading ("Transactional Terms" and together with the Static Terms, the "Terms"). The Transactional Terms may amend the Static Terms, as notified by us prior to trading. The pre-trading disclosure of the Terms is intended to relate primarily to the requirements of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission.
