What is a REPO? A REPO is essentially a secured loan, where collateral is sold with a price and date fixed for its re-purchase. Although in classic REPO full legal title to the collateral is transferred to the buyer, economic benefit of the collateral is retained by the seller. Thus REPO trades as a money market instrument. Repurchase agreements originated in arrangements between the US Federal Reserve Bank and the Money Market, but are now around the world. REPOs range in maturity from overnight to one year or even longer, and are an essential part of the debt capital markets. The UK government allowed gilts to be traded on the REPO market in 1996.About the Author:
