Event overview

ICMA’s European Repo and Collateral Council (ERCC) brings together professional participants from all sides of Europe's repo and collateral market. It plays a leading role in setting out best practice for the market and provides data on market volumes through the European repo survey.

The ERCC’s General Meetings provide a good opportunity to meet others in the market and hear about various current issues and the steps being taken to address them. The meetings are open to anyone with an interest in repo and collateral.

The agenda will cover a wide range of relevant topics, including the ERCC’s extensive work on the implementation of the Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) and Central Securities Depositories Regulation (CSDR), ahead of their application in 2020.

Attendees will also hear about the latest legal developments, current operational challenges and the role of technology. Another focus area will be the current transition to risk free rates and its implications for repo markets. More details on agenda and speakers will be announced shortly.

This ICMA event is free of charge and open to all ICMA members and to interested financial market participants; however registration in advance is essential.
For security reasons, delegates who have not registered in advance will not be admitted to this event. Delegates will be required to provide a registration confirmation on arrival (either in print or mobile), to ensure entry.
