Repo Market

Established in July 2001, the Repo Market has developed tremendously and is now a highly liquid market for European securities. In June 2016 more than 145 international participants benefit from anonymous trading and clearing through a central counterparty with low costs.
In the General Collateral (GC) Repo segment, collateral can be turned into cash swiftly and directly, while the Special Repo segment offers a market for single securities financing.

Overview of content

Principles

Repo Market participants can trade repos with a wide range of around 5,000 fixed income securities divided into 26 different baskets. In both segments, the General Collateral (GC) and the Special Repo segment, collateral can be turned into euro or pound sterling swiftly and anonymously with low risk through a central counterparty.

Various standardized baskets of fixed income securities fulfill the customers' need.

 
The manual allocation of single securities after the conclusion of a basket trade enables a selective collateralization directly via the trading screen.

The market offers securities such as:

  • European Government Bonds
  • Jumbo-Pfandbriefe and Pfandbriefe
  • KfW/Laender Bonds
  • European Covered Bonds
  • Agency Bonds
  • European Corporate Bonds

All securities of the various baskets can be traded in the Special segment as well.
