Resolution Stay Clauses

December 2016

In line with international commitments, the Swiss legislator introduced an obligation of counterparties to derivatives and certain other financial markets transactions to add resolution stay clauses to such agreements. With these clauses, the parties recognize by contract the power of the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) to order that such contracts may not be terminated for a limited time period in the critical phase of resolution proceedings.
