FX and Currency Derivatives Documentation

This area of EMTA’s website lists the various forms of standardized documents developed by the EMTA membership in the area of FX and Currency Derivatives. Beginning in 2001, with the publication of its first set of template terms for non-deliverable forward FX transactions for the Argentine Peso, the Brazilian Real, the Indian Rupiah, the Korean Won, the Philippine Peso and the Taiwan Dollar, EMTA has continued to develop more such documentation with the goal of reducing settlement backlog, enhancing market transparency and promoting efficiency. You may read more about this effort overall in Activities & Services/Working and Interest Groups.

Members may access the full text of the documents below with their EMTA log-on id and password information. Non-members interested in accessing the full text of specific documents should CONTACT US. An access fee may apply. Certain documentation may be reserved for Member Use only.
