Moratorium: Generically means the time period allowed before repayments or payment of interest on a loan begin. In the context of credit derivatives, as a credit event, moratorium means the statutory or other action by a reference entity whereby the reference entity grants to itself a moratorium during which interest and principal payments will stand deferred. Usually, such action is taken by sovereigns during financial difficulties. See also credit event.
