Key parameters of REPO transactions
  • The mechanism for a REPO transaction operates on the basis that, for the period of the loan, the securities that are being offered as collateral become the property of the Bank, with the client obliged to buy the securities back from the Bank when the period of the transaction ends.
  • These transactions are regulated by internationally recognised standard contracts: Global Master Repurchase Agreement (ISMA GMRA);
  • Once the term of the contract ends, it may be possible to rollover the REPO transaction.
  • Only marketable securities named in a list approved by the Bank may be offered as collateral for such transactions.
