You should also refer to any documentation that INGCM has sent to you or that we have previously executed, including, but not limited to, any master agreement, master confirmation agreement, confirmation (including any confirmation relating to a prior swap), term sheet or other summary of economic terms. Please communicate with your INGCM representative if you believe that any material economic terms of a swap have not been provided to you.
Documentation provided to you by INGCM may reference certain other documents and definitions, including those published by ISDA. Any such referenced documents or definitions (including those found at the ISDA Bookstore are available from your INGCM representative upon request.

By entering into a swap with INGCM you will be deemed to have acknowledged that you have received from INGCM prior to entry into such swap the relevant disclosures, notifications and other information sufficient for you to evaluate the material risks and characteristics of such swap.

INGCM may record telephone conversations between or among INGCM personnel and third parties. These recordings may be used for regulatory purposes or be submitted in evidence in any proceedings.

Suitability Disclosure

Clearing Disclosure

For counterparties who are not Swap Dealers, Major Swap Participants, security-based swap dealers or major security-based swap participants you are entitled to the following rights:

  • (a) in connection with each swap that is subject to mandatory clearing, you have the sole right to select the derivatives clearing organization through which the transaction will clear; and
  • (b) in connection with each swap not subject to mandatory clearing, you have the right to require clearing of the swap and select the derivatives clearing organization through which the transaction will clear.

  • (c) INGCM currently utilizes LCH via an affiliate as DCO

Portfolio Reconciliation

Portfolio reconciliation is a post-execution processing and risk management technique that is designed to: (i) Identify and resolve discrepancies between the counterparties with regard to the terms of a swap either immediately after execution or during the life of the swap; (ii) ensure effective confirmation of all the terms of the swap; and (iii) identify and resolve discrepancies between the counterparties regarding the valuation of the swap. In some instances, portfolio reconciliation also may facilitate the identification and resolution of discrepancies between the counterparties with regard to valuations of collateral held as margin.

Accordingly, the CFTC enacted 17 CFR § 23.502, which requires Swap Dealers (SDs) and Major Swap Participants (MSPs) to reconcile their swap portfolios with one another and provide counterparties who are not registered as SDs or MSPs with regular opportunities for portfolio reconciliation.  The SEC has enacted a parallel rule (17 CFR § 240.15Fi-3) for Security-Based Swap Dealers (SBSDs) and Major Security-Based Swap Participants (MSBSPs).

In addition to other obligations, these rules require INGCM, as a registered SD and SBSD, to (i) with respect to each counterparty that is a SD, MSP, SBSD or MSBSP, agree in writing on the terms of portfolio reconciliation and (ii) with respect to all other types of counterparties, maintain and follow written policies and procedures reasonably designed to ensure there is a written agreement on the terms of portfolio reconciliation.  INGCM satisfies this obligation through one of the following methods:

  • Confirming customers have agreed to Portfolio Reconciliation under Schedule 4 of the ISDA March 2013 DF Protocol, either via elections on Markit’s ISDA Amend website or via bilateral Dodd-Frank protocol adherence documentation exchanged between INGCM and its customers; or
  • Agreeing to terms of portfolio reconciliation via a separate written agreement between ING and the customer.
