Latest ICMA survey sets baseline size of the European repo market at record EUR 7,250 billion - Repo market shows signs of adapting to new regulatory environment
14 March 2018 The European Repo and Collateral Council (ERCC) of the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) has today released the results of its 34th semi-annual survey of the European repo market. The survey, which calculates the amount of repo business outstanding on 6 December 2017 from the returns of 64 offices of 60 financial groups, sets the baseline figure for European market size at EUR 7,250 billion. This is the largest figure ever recorded by the survey since it began in 2001 and exceeds pre-crisis figures for the size of the repo market in Europe. After a period of 4 years where market size has remained static, with largely seasonal fluctuations, this survey shows growth, in terms of contracts outstanding on the survey date, of 12.3% since the last survey in June 2017 and 28.2% year on year.
