This essay considers standard-form over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives contracts from an organizational perspective. OTC derivatives contracts are highly standardized and have a peculiar modular structure. Most are drafted by a single trade group, which is not party to the contracts. These features in turn shape the behavior of the trade group, the contracting institutions, national regulators, and the global financial markets.
