Frontclear study - Repo: OTC or exchange-traded?
Frontclear, whose purpose is to facilitate more participative interbank markets, has commissioned a study to assess whether an exchange is likely to be more effect than an over-the counter (OTC) market in fostering the development of domestic repo trading in emerging financial markets, particularly frontier markets. The study, carried out by Richard Comotto the author of ICMA’s European Repo Survey, considers the arguments in favour of and against trading fixed income repo in OTC markets and exchanges, and reviews the evidence from four repo exchanges, Costa Rica, Kazakhstan, South Africa and Vietnam, with complimentary case studies from China, the Philippines, South Korea and European markets.
