In light of increasing electronification of repo markets, ICMA has conducted a mapping exercise of repo electronic trading platforms and other technology solutions. The directory is intended to help market participants understand what execution venues are available for repo trading (D2D or D2C, for instance), product scope, as well as differences in trading protocols, clearing and collateral configurations. The directory also provides information on the venues’ regulatory status, market identifier codes (MIC) and additional services on offer such as regulatory reporting under SFTR.
The scope was first revised in June 2020 to include other front-office trading tools and now includes details for 6 order and/or execution management systems (O/EMS) providing connectivity to multiple repo trading venues. Given the importance of platform connectivity and interoperability with current financial market infrastructure, the updated technology directories include information on supported electronic communication protocols and standards.
The mapping directory does not constitute an exhaustive list of providers in the market. Relevant providers that are not yet covered by the mapping directory and wish to join are very welcome to do so.
