A special committee of the International Swaps and Derivatives Association will meet at 1300 GMT Friday to consider a question from a market participant on whether Greece has suffered a credit event, ISDA has said in a statement.
Greece Friday announced results of its distressed-debt exchange with private creditors; 85.8% of bondholders pledged to participate.
It subsequently said it would be activating collective action clauses to force any holdouts into the deal.
If the ISDA committee rules that a credit event has indeed occurred, it could trigger payouts on $3.2 billion of insurance-like contracts covering Greek sovereign debt.
