The negotiation of prime brokerage and other important trading and counterparty documentation can be tortuous for business people, whether for a start up or existing hedge fund, other professional funds, fund platforms or managed accounts.  At Oesa we are only too aware of the difficulties our clients face and are here to assist them in getting vital documents signed quickly and cost effectively.

In our experience the negotiation of any documentation can be unnecessarily prolonged, which can be very frustrating and can affect when trading commences. As part of our Documentation Management Services we review, draft and negotiate the documentation for our clients, advising on the progress every step of the way but preserving the counterparty relationships whilst doing so.  We take a proactive approach and drive the negotiations to an efficient conclusion.

We specialise in prime brokerage and trading documentation.  This is just a taster of what we cover:

  • Prime Brokerage, Synthetic Prime Brokerage & FXPB
  • ISDA Master Agreements & the CSA or CSD
  • Master Confirmations, supplements and annexes including ISDA templates
  • ETD Agreements and the corresponding CDEA/Give Ups
  • OTC Clearing Agreements and addendums
  • GMRA & MRA
  • CDS Intermediation
  • Master netting agreements
  • Delegated Reporting Agreements
  • Electronic access agreements

For fund platforms we help to establish umbrella templates for use by the various sub-funds or compartments so the legal process becomes streamlined and even more cost-effective.

We also negotiate the operational and service providers’ agreements needed by our clients such as the Custody and Administration Agreements, Depositary, Depo-Lite, EMIR transaction reporting agreements and so on.
