5. Tri-party repo

With secured funding and financing transactions now an integral part of most market particpants’ portfolios, the need to drive efficiency, reduce risk and enhance returns has made smart collateral management essential.

A secured tri-party transaction helps to limit risk exposure, increase returns and optimise balance sheet usage in an environment where regulatory pressures are driving systemic change.
