Post-crisis regulation requires further evaluation as it could be detrimental for repo and securities lending markets finds GFMA and ICMA market assessment
17 December 2018 The Global Financial Markets Association (GFMA) and the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) have today published a report, The GFMA and ICMA Repo Market Study: Post-Crisis Reforms and the Evolution of the Repo and Broader SFT Markets, which assesses the impact of post-crisis regulation on the functioning of the global repo and securities financing transactions (SFT) markets.

The report provides a broad account of the global repo market’s operation during the crisis and analyses the subsequent regulatory reforms. It finds that they have had a profound impact on banks’ SFT businesses with a significant increase in capital requirements, which could detrimentally impact the securities lending market and the way the repo market functions under stressed scenarios.
