The ICMA European Repo and Collateral Council presents its 2017 Professional Repo and Collateral Management Workshop in London on 1-2 June 2017. This annual industry-run workshop caters to the needs of professional repo market participants and is provided at subsidised rates to ICMA members.
The workshop is built around a core of essential topics, supplemented by presentations on developments in market conditions, infrastructure and regulation, which are delivered by experienced practitioners and major service-providers.
Core topics include:
• a thorough introduction to the repo instrument and market, looking at the mechanics of the instrument, and its legal and economic foundations
• 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 CCPs and tri-party agents
• overview of the pivotal role of repo in the markets for cash securities and derivatives.
Topical issues to be covered include: developments in the infrastructure of the repo market; the implications of T2S, assessments of the likely impacts of the mounting wave of regulatory changes such as the Leverage Ratio, LCR, NSFR, CSDR and SFTR.
This event will be hosted by UBS.
Who should attend? Although specifically designed for new repo market practitioners, it is also suitable for individuals working in legal, compliance, accounting and operations, market infrastructures, rating agencies, regulators, central bankers and others who need to know more about repo.
