The Master Securities Forward Transaction Agreement (MSFTA) is a master`s contract that allows the purchase and sale of forward documents and other late delivery documents. The first version of MSFTA was published in 1996 by the Securities Industry Financial Market Association (“SIFMA”). In 2012, SIFMA, with the help of market participants, published a new version of MSFTA that replaced the 1996 agreement. The 2012 version contains reciprocal margin provisions in the text of the treaty. With a expected compliance date for the FINRA 4210 amendments that require margin reservations for certain forward transactions, we expect many MSFTA negotiations in 2020. Under an MSFTA, in the event of a contractual default (including bankruptcy), the fund may terminate any TBA transaction with that counterparty, determine the net amount owed by one of the parties under its master netting agreements, and sell or retain all guarantees held up to the net amount owed to the fund under the master compensation agreements. A use agreement where the parties can make transactions in which one party (a “lender”) lends certain guarantees against a guarantee transfer to the other party (a “borrower”). To the extent that a fund`s written investment policy, as outlined in the Fund`s prospectus at the time and in the Fund`s IFK in its registration statement, the fund manager is authorized to enter into derivatives agreements on behalf of the fund (.
