09:20 Panel: The Future of Repo for the Asset Management Industry

This in-depth discussion will explore how the repo market is evolving as a result of regulatory change, the impact on participants and how the industry eco-system is changing to meet their needs.
It will also focus on why repo is important to the buy-side, what the challenges and benefits are and what solutions are available to enable asset managers to manage the change, capture opportunity and increase efficiency. The panel will bring together key figures from the buy-side, technology firms and market infrastructure providers to highlight the changing landscape, how it impacts pre and post-trade processing and how recent innovations can help.

The topics up for discussion will include:

  • Drivers for participation – why is repo important to the buy-side?
  • What are the challenges and how are they being addressed?
  • Regulatory change – including SFTR, CSDR and their impact
  • Market access – CCPs, electronic trading, new trading venues and automation
  • Operational efficiency – automation, straight-through processing
  • More reporting, more data and more transparency – can participants benefit?
  • Repo, securities lending, collateral - is a joined-up approach needed?
