This is the latest in a series of reports on domestic repo markets that ICMA is publishing as part of its continued commitment to promoting the development of repo markets around the world. Guides to domestic repo markets in
Japan and Indonesia were published in February and March. The guide for the Philippines will be available shortly, followed by Thailand, Malaysia, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, and Singapore.

ICMA has played a significant role in promoting the international repo market since the 1990s. This includes the development of the Global Master Repurchase Agreement (GMRA), which has become the principal master agreement for cross-border repos globally, as well as for many domestic repo markets, supported by annually updated legal opinions in more than 60 jurisdictions. (View a full list of jurisdictions covered by the 2022 legal opinions update).
