Ganado Advocates has pioneered advice in this area since the involvement of the first Maltese counterparties in the market. Representing ISDA, the industry’s global trade organisation for OTC derivatives, we regularly deliver industry as well as private opinions on master agreements, exchange trading, repos and securities lending arrangements.

Adding to our long-standing representation of prime brokers and investment managers in this area, we are regularly consulted on the impact of major regulatory developments, such as the introduction of FATCA, the European Markets Infrastructure Regulation and the EU Regulation on short selling and credit default swaps, and have been asked to assist in the establishment of two new regulated markets for Malta.

The firm’s derivatives and structured finance practice is fully integrated with areas covering financial markets, insurance and banking regulation, tax and investment services and funds.
