Coordinating Swap and Loan Documentation

November 25

Gain insight into the legal and regulatory implications clients entering into interest rate swaps.

This topic will assist loan counsel in understanding the legal and regulatory implications of their clients entering into interest rate swaps in order to hedge the interest rate risk associated with a credit facility. For such a hedge to work properly, it is crucial for loan documentation to include the appropriate swap terms, and for loan counsel to comprehend how swap and loan documentation work in tandem. This includes ensuring that any security instruments properly secure a borrower’s swap obligations; the interest rate terms, including LIBOR fallback terms, match between the swap and the loan; the swap terminates on its own terms; and the parties are complying with Dodd-Frank regulatory requirements. Following this information, loan counsel will be able to identity swap-related pitfalls, and more efficiently draft loan documentation for hedged credit facilities.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to describe how an interest rate swap works and what swap documentation entails.
  • You will be able to discuss best practices for incorporating swap terms in loan documentation.
  • You will be able to explain why LIBOR is being phased out.
  • You will be able to identify Dodd-Frank regulatory considerations, including which borrowers are eligible to enter into swaps.
