Whilst the headlines in banking are often about trading, clearing and margin, a quiet revolution is going on within the legal departments within the capital markets. No longer does the creation, management and execution of agreements need to rely upon MS Word, file folders and emails, but can be supercharged by new platforms available now. This event co-hosted by The Field Effect is to showcase some of those platforms and give a fresh view on how to manage the lifecycle of legal documentation, whether for derivatives or otherwise.

  • Find out how to store, search and manage bulk agreements
  • Find out how to extract data from previous PDF agreements
  • Find out how to quickly draft and execute new agreements
  • And find out the real nitty gritty of the deployment of these solutions

White paper

The Field Effect white paper on The Legal Documentation Legal Challenge will be made available to attendees in the special edition of Rocket. If you’d like to get an early copy head over to their website here:

Managing legal agreements has long been a challenge for many financial institutions. Perhaps the most pressing priorities right now are the ISDA Master Agreements and Collateral Support Annexes (CSAs). But there are many other agreement types including GMRAs, GMSLAs, ACAs, CTAs… the acronyms are endless.


The problem is how best to extract accurate agreement terms from executed legal documents, and get the data to the systems that need it for key business processes such as on-boarding, trading, risk management and collateralisation. The two key goals are compliance with new regulations; whilst minimising operational risk and cost.


This paper examines the regulatory drivers, key business processes and emerging technology solutions for management of legal agreement data, and suggests a structured approach to addressing these challenges.
