Have you ever written about Derivatives and Bank Insolvency?
I am wondering if I understand this right: in a banking insolvency, those with derivative contracts with the failed bank get netted, and collateral absorbs losses. The conservator can transfer contracts to another bank, if it would be the best result. After all that, then if the failed bank still owes anything to the derivative counterparty, which happens?
• The derivative counterparty is superior to senior unsecured clients for the remaining claim, and gets paid before senior unsecured, or
• The derivative counterparty is pari passu with senior unsecured clients for the remaining claim.
Any help you would give me with this is appreciated.
We need to be precise – “banks” aren’t eligible for federal bankruptcy, but instead go into FDIC insolvency. Broker Dealers (e.g., Lehman) are eligible for bankruptcy. There are similar rules for derivative contracts in both cases, but I wanted to clear up which you were asking about first.
