The complete, practical primer on repos for every financial professional. Classic repos, buy/sell-back repos, securities lending, and more. Repo users, applications, and key market developments. Repo markets in the U.S., France, UK, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Italy, and Japan. Domestic and international repo markets have grown dramatically over the past few years, for several reasons: a greater need to take and hedge short positions in the capital and derivative markets; growing concern over counterparty credit risk; and the favorable capital adequacy treatment given to repos. Most important, the markets are increasingly aware of the flexibility repos provide, and the wide range of applications where they can be of benefit.
