Proposal: New modeling initiative on FINOS Legend shared instance

To launch a working group to continue enhancing the ISDA Common Domain Model Commodities element.

Business Problem

The ISDA CDM recently introduced its first instance of Commodities representation & looked to capture Payout terms of a vanilla swap. There are many other iterations of Commodities contracts that would benefit from a industry standard being created and the driver of this group is to continue to build the CDM and look to capture payouts associated with Commodity Options in the first instance.

Proposed Solution

Looking to tackle the Commodity Option payout first, the proposed solution will look to build on the existing generic option component with any additional terms that are relevant to commodities but not necessarily captured.



FINOS hosts collaborative modeling initiatives, so contributors are encouraged to seek public commitment from at least one additional organization before the project can be approved.
