Repo Market

Established in July 2001, the Repo Market has developed tremendously and is now a highly liquid market for European securities. In November 2017 more than 152 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.
