Event overview

Uganda’s repo market has been in rapid development across the past few years. Achievements include the full review of the legal & regulatory framework relative to GMRA enforceability, with recommendations now being implemented together with the central bank and the market’s stakeholders. This is a solid backdrop against which the Bank of Uganda is supporting the introduction of buy/sell-backs in the sector with the main objective of managing Counterparty credit within the banking sector. The Bank of Uganda signed an MOU with Frontclear in which the Umbrella Guarantee Facility (Tradeclear) product is being introduced into the market with the objective of improving access to liquidity through mitigating credit risk, effectively enhancing banking relationships and the overall market’s liquidity and shock resilience.

Speakers in this live event will detail these developments and the expectations for the near future, also within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
