Estimated 85% of private bond holders have accepted swap

If "Collective Action Clauses" are implemented by the Greek government in order to force bond-swaps, this would trigger both an insurance event (if then classified as a 'credit event') by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, and the credit ratings agencies could then declare the action a defacto default.

WIth the pressure on to push as many bondholder groups into the swap-deal, one of the surprising holdouts were six of the fifteen state-run Greek pension agencies.

Greece has €14.5 billion bond maturities to pay on March 20, and the tranche payment from the latest troika deal is being held until a deal is clinched with the private investors.
