Over-the-counter derivatives are traded between two parties, not through an exchange or intermediary. The size of the over-the-counter market means that risk managers must carefully review traders and ensure that authorized transactions are properly managed. When two parties complete a transaction, they will each receive confirmation explaining their details and referring to the signed agreement. The terms of the ISDA master contract then cover the transaction. A Support Credit Annex (CSA) is a legal document that regulates credit support (assets) for derivatives transactions. It is one of the four parties that make up an ISDA executive contract, but it is not mandatory. It is possible to have an ISDA agreement without CSA, but normally no CSA without ISDA.

Banks and other companies around the world use ISDA masters. The ISDA Masteragrement also facilitates transaction closure and clearing, as it bridges the gap between different standards in different legal systems. Derivatives trading carries high risks.
