ISDA asked to consider credit event on Argentina CDS
By Davide Scigliuzzo
NEW YORK, July 31 (IFR) - The International Swaps and Derivatives Association has received its first request to consider whether a credit event has occurred on Argentina's credit default swap contracts (CDS), according to the ISDA website.
Swiss bank UBS on Thursday asked ISDA's determinations committee to consider whether a "failure to pay" credit event has occurred, citing a missed deadline to deliver interest payments to exchange bondholders.
If the request is accepted, the 15-member committee will vote on whether a payment on Argentine CDS contracts can be triggered. (Reporting by Davide Scigliuzzo; Editing by Marc Carnegie)
