Defined Conditions Payout Commitment

From Open Risk Manual


Defined Conditions Payout Commitment. A commitment which is only made when certain defined conditions are met. Further notes: Like all contractual commitments, the details of the commitment (and in this case, the conditions) are defined in the corresponding Contractual Terms. These set out what the commitment is and what the conditions are under which it is to be met. Term introduced in order to support digital and other exotic options. Note this is similar to but distinct from commitments where the specific nature of the commitment (typically a cashflow) is defined by resolving some mathematical formula i.e. where the commitment to do something is not conditional but the precise monetary amounts (payment, settlement) are.
