Event Overview

The ICMA European Repo and Collateral Council (ERCC) is the industry representative body that fashions consensus solutions to emerging, practical issues that can develop in the rapidly evolving European repo market.

The ERCC Annual General Meeting provides a good opportunity to hear about the various issues that the market is currently facing and the steps being taken to address these. Three issues in particular were the focus of this year’s event:

  1. The evolving role of the buy-side in the European repo market, including a presentation from PGGM, one of the large buy-side firms active in repo.
  2. Repo market conditions in Europe: A short ERCC study - What happened with the repo market at year-end and why?
  3. Key challenges in repo and collateral operations, building up on the substantial work undertaken by the ERCC Operations Group.
