This publication considers the extent to which certain contractual terms and conditions in common usage in the financing markets might be affected by a break-up or fragmentation of the eurozone. It covers:

  • the LMA recommended forms of facility agreement
  • typical corporate eurobond terms
  • the ISDA Master Agreements

It also suggests some practical steps that contracting parties might consider in an attempt to mitigate the impact of euro break-up or fragmentation.
