The European Repo Council (ERC)* of the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) launched a study: ‘Perspectives from the eye of the storm: the current state and future evolution of the European repo market’, which looks at how the repo market in Europe is changing in response to regulatory pressures.
The study records growing concern that the cumulative impact of various prudential and market regulations, along with extraordinary monetary policy, could be affecting the ability of the European repo market to function efficiently and effectively. This could, in turn, have wider repercussions for the broader capital markets and so for the real economy.
