(a) the Appropriate Market means, in relation to securities of any description, the market which is the most appropriate market for securities of that description, as determined by the Non Defaulting Party;
(b) the Default Valuation Time means, in relation to an Event of Default, the close of business in the Appropriate Market on the fifth dealing day after the day on which that Event of Default occurs or, where that Event of Default is the occurrence of an Act of Insolvency in respect of which under paragraph 10.1(d) no notice is required from the Non Defaulting Party in order for such event to constitute an Event of Default, the close of business on the fifth dealing day after the day on which the Non Defaulting Party first became aware of the occurrence of such Event of Default;
(c) Deliverable Securities means Equivalent Securities or Equivalent Non-Cash Collateral to be delivered by the Defaulting Party;
(d) Net Value means at any time, in relation to any Deliverable Securities or Receivable Securities, the amount which, in the reasonable opinion of the Non Defaulting Party, represents their fair market value, having regard to such pricing sources and methods (which may include, without limitation, available prices for securities with similar maturities, terms and credit characteristics as the relevant Equivalent Securities or Equivalent Collateral) as the Non Defaulting Party considers appropriate, less, in the case of Receivable Securities, or plus, in the case of Deliverable Securities, all Transaction Costs incurred or reasonably anticipated in connection with the purchase or sale of such securities;

Content and comparisons

Patient observers will note that the 2018 Pledge GMSLA version is quite a lot shorter. This is because there’s no need for AET — being a pledge construct it doesn’t rely on netting in the first place — and all that malarkey about the valuation of Equivalent Collateral is a bit otiose too. Also no faffing around with letters of credit.
