Electronic Repo Market Is Key?

Filed under: 2015, etrading — holky @ 7:31 am

EFN article outlining that majority (55%) of electronic repo flow is through Brokertec … €261bn last month … but that Basel II will be the catalyst to broaden the number of participants in these electronic markets. Then speculating on what the venue for business to customer electronic repos will be; Bloomberg expanding its existing Repo thing (taking the build it and they will come route), existing interdealer venues building a second tier to preserve existing participants privileges while giving the others second-level access, LiquidityHub ‘doing’ repos, or dealers buying back Tradeweb and offering it there..

  1. From memory MTS do something near €50bn a day in repos, mainly Italian. I think the €260bn Broker-tec figure is a daily one.

    In terms of overall % of Repos done, I understand that is still fairly low. If a product was screaming out for an e-solution it is repos, but they can be complex little things.
