ICMA Workshop: Intensive One-Day Workshop: Repo & the European Repo Market


Short but comprehensive and therefore intensive training for those requiring a detailed familiarisation with repo and the repo market who do not have two or three days to spare. Suitable for staff from all departments of firms active in the repo market as well as for those firms who support repo market participants such as legal advice and technology. 

Over a full day, the workshop will cover the following:

  • Explaining the legal and economic essence of a repo, building a well-grounded understanding which will provide delegates with insight into post-trade transaction and collateral management procedures and other features of repo, as well as enabling them to work from first principles in order to analyse and address day-to-day issues arising in their repo business; 
  • recognising the benefits but also the constraints on collateral as a hedge for credit and liquidity risks, and the consequences for the behaviour of the repo market in crisis; 
  • familiarising delegates with the core procedures for collateral management including the use of collateral after a default and the problem of collateral not being delivered; 
  • differentiating the two basic species of repo and the variants of the repurchase transaction as well as explaining the relationship of repo to securities lending; 
  • comparing and contrasting the two segments of the repo market (GC and specials) and highlight the drivers of the repo rate in both; 
  • explaining the function and basic construction of the GMRA, which is the standard global master agreement for repo; 
  • offering a perspective on the technology that currently supports each stage in the life-cycle of a repo in Europe; 
  • setting out the regulatory context that shapes repo activity in Europe and weigh the impact. 
There are no qualifications or other prerequisites for attending but it would be helpful to understand the basic mechanics of a bond.
