Attribution of Collateral to Loans - GMSLA Provision
"Attribution of Collateral to Loans"
5.7 in a Nutshell™ (GMSLA edition)
5.7 Where Equivalent Collateral is delivered and the Parties have not agreed otherwise it will be attributed to the earliest outstanding Loan up to the point at which the Market Value of Collateral for that Loan equals its Required Collateral Value, and then to the next earliest outstanding Loan and so on.
This is a key provision in terms of the GMSLA Netting analysis because it provides a means for ascertaining the particular collateral that is attributable to a given Loan, which means that, should you decide to voluntarily terminate all Loans as a prelude to a close out, there is certainty as to what Collateral attaches to what loan, and you can therefore determine the Default Market Value and so on.
