Workshop Overview


The ICMA European Repo and Collateral Council presents its 2018 Professional Repo and Collateral Management Course in London on 24-25 September 2018. This industry-run course caters to the needs of professional repo market participants and is provided at subsidised rates to ICMA members, underlining the association's commitment to education and the development of this financing product.

This annual event has established itself as the repo industry’s principal educational forum. Although designed for new repo market practitioners, the breadth and depth of the course attracts a wide range of delegates, including legal, compliance, accounting and operations staff, analysts, staff from market infrastructures, rating agencies, regulators, central bankers and others.

The course is built around a core of regular topics, supplemented by presentations on developments in market conditions, infrastructure and regulation, which are delivered by experienced practitioners and major service-providers. It starts with a thorough introduction to the repo instrument and market, which looks at the essential mechanics of the instrument, and its legal and economic foundations. The main types and variants of repo are also reviewed. Other core topics include the methodology of the risk and operational management of repo, with specific reference to the provisions of the Global Master Repurchase Agreement (GMRA) and the new Guide to Best Practice, as well as accounting and taxation treatment. The roles of key infrastructures such as CCP and tri-party agents are also examined and there is an overview of the pivotal role of repo in the markets for cash securities and derivatives.

Core topics include:
  • a thorough introduction to the repo instrument and market, looking at the legal construction, economic logic and operational mechanics of the instrument
  • the alternative forms of repo (repurchase transaction and sell/buy-back), synthetic substitutes and variants such as open, floating-rate, forward, evergreen and extendible repos
  • comparison with securities lending
  • how repo is priced
  • a review of the pivotal role of repo in the markets for cash securities and derivatives, both transactionally and analytically
  • the methodology of the risk and operational management of repo, with specific reference to the provisions of the Global Master Repurchase Agreement (GMRA) and the new Guide to Best Practice
  • the roles of key infrastructures such as CCPs and tri-party agents
Topical issues to be covered include: the implications of T2S; updates on the impact of regulatory changes such as the Leverage Ratio, LCR, NSFR, CSDR, SFTR and MiFID/MiFIR; peer-to-peer trading; client clearing; the activity of the buyside.
