    Part VII of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000
    A transfer under Part VII is a legal transfer mechanism approved by the High Court of England and Wales that takes the place of the requirement to bilaterally re-paper legal documentation with clients moving from Barclays Bank PLC (BBPLC) to BBI, including ISDA Master Agreements and CSAs. If your organisation has accepted the Part VII transfer mechanism, existing BBPLC and Barclays Capital Services Limited (BCSL) CSA documentation is deemed to be in place between you and BBI, with no requirement to negotiate a new contract.

    Further information relating to the Part VII Transfer Scheme, can be found here  https://home.barclays/who-we-are/our-strategy/preparing-for-brexit/part-vii-transfer/

    Collateral Balance Transfer
    Where the transfer of existing positions is required, your Sales representative / Barclays Brexit representative will reach out to agree the transfer date. In this event, we need to agree in advance the transfer mechanism for moving any related collateral balance

    Where margin calls are agreed via Acadia for BBPLC and BCSL, our intention is to replicate these arrangements for BBI. You will be required to accept these requests in Acadia to continue with automated margin calls and exchange with BBI. 

    Third Party Custodian / Tri Party Set Up
    Where third party custodians/tri-parties are used, please ensure these are set up enabling the exchange of collateral with BBI. Please reach out to xralondoncollateralc@barclays.com for support with the above items or with any further questions you may have in relation to exchange of collateral readiness.
