External Business Conduct - Rates

The links below contain market standard material terms (as supplemented by the relevant Reference Documents) for the relevant swaps/security-based swaps referred to under "Products" below ("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. The Terms are intended to relate primarily to the requirements of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Reference documents

You are solely responsible for making your own independent appraisal of and investigation into the products, investments and transactions contemplated, particularly outside of the Static Terms provided.

In no event may any copyright or trademark notice from the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. (“ISDA”) be removed.
