Repo with the central counterparty (CCP)

Project description

Repo with a CCP is a type of on-exchange repo trade whereby the CCP (National Clearing Centre) acts as the trading participant's counterparty. The CCP guarantees that obligations are met to all non-defaulting parties regardless of whether obligations to the CCP have been met or not.


  • Market participants do not need to establish bilateral credit lines; one limit is imposed on the CCP
  • Order book repo trades are available
  • Standard discounts are employed
  • Execution of trades is quick and convenient
  • Online market repo rates for cash and securities are backed by orders and trades
  • Minimization of cash and securities assigned for settlement as a result of the netting of obligations/claims across all repo trades with CCP and T+ trades.
  • The reduction of demands on the market participant's capital (balance sheet netting of all trades)
  • The unified and reliable risk management system (membership criteria, margin requirements, sufficient guarantee funds, and the CCP's capital allow a high credit limit to be established for transactions with the CCP)
  • Boosting repo market liquidity
  • Single counterparty for all market participants (the CCP guarantees settlement of any repo trades to non-defaulting parties)

Settlement instructions are not obligatory for repo with the CCP – off order book to be settled. If the settlement instruction has not been submitted by the start of the intra-day clearing session, the transaction status is automatically changed to Settled with the transaction included in the first clearing pool. This is optional facility as existing positions are changed after regular and special settlement instructions submitted by participants, are exercised (transactions are settled online in case of the urgent settlement instruction).
