The International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) today announced that it is broadening the leadership of the ISDA Documentation Committee by forming an advisory board that will encompass buy and sell side institutions to better represent global documentation needs across constituencies.

The board will provide strategic guidance and leadership to the Documentation Committee’s work on a range of topics, including new product documentation, resource allocation across projects, legal opinion scope and coverage of Amicus Briefs, and will replace the existing regional chairmanship structure.

“The new advisory board will boost ISDA’s legal and documentation efforts across regions and disciplines,” said Eraj Shirvani, chairman of ISDA and head of fixed income EMEA at Credit Suisse. “The board will facilitate a globally consistent approach to documentation development and maintenance while ensuring appropriate levels of regional expertise on key matters of relevance to both buy and sell side.”

The advisory board will include the current chairs of the ISDA Documentation Committee: Chip Goodrich (Deutsche Bank), Serge Salabi (BNP Paribas), Teruo Tanaka (Royal Bank of Scotland) and Don Thompson (JP Morgan Chase).

The following experienced industry practitioners have also agreed to serve on the board:

Tricia Bowden, managing director and senior counsel, Goldman Sachs Japan Co., Ltd.

Sarah Lee, associate general counsel, Global Head of credit derivatives, Legal and Derivatives Regulatory, Bank of America Merrill Lynch

Christopher Ramsay, director and associate general counsel and head of global transaction management, Citadel Investment Group, LLC

James Starky, chief legal officer, Cairn Capital Limited

Andrew Wan, director and senior counsel Asia Pacific Legal, Citibank, N.A

The ISDA Documentation Committee provides overall direction for all documentation projects and supervises the association’s respective documentation working groups. The committee expands and updates the library of ISDA documentation and works to ensure the enforceability of the netting provisions of the Master Agreements.
