The New York Times reported in September 2019 that it was estimated that a trillion dollars of guarantees per day were deployed in U.S. pension markets.  The Federal Reserve Bank of New York declares the daily collateral volume of renuating for different types of repurchase agreements. On 24.10.2019, the volume was the overnight guaranteed cash rate (SOFR) of USD 1.086 billion; General collateral rate (BGCR) $453 billion and $425 billion (General Collateral Rate) (TGCR).  However, these figures are not additive, the latter two being only elements of the first SOFR.  Whether you`re looking for more security and pick-up returns or want to diversify your asset portfolio, it`s clear that using Tri-Party-Repos has never been easier. A pension purchase contract, also known as repo, PR or Surrender and Repurchase Agreement, is a form of short-term borrowing, mainly in government bonds. The distributor sells the underlying guarantee to investors and, by mutual agreement between the two parties, buys it back shortly thereafter, usually the next day, at a slightly higher price. It seems that 2015 will be a pioneering year for tri-party deposits, as more and more corporate treasurers are starting to use this secure investment vehicle in their cash management strategy. Despite the similarities with secured loans, deposits are actual purchases. However, since the purchaser only temporarily owns the guarantee, these agreements are often considered loans for tax and accounting purposes. In the event of bankruptcy, pension investors can, in most cases, sell their assets. This is another difference between pension credits and secured loans; in the case of most secured loans, bankrupt investors would be subject to automatic stay.
Treasury or government accounts, corporate and treasury bonds/government bonds and shares can all be used as “guarantees” in a repurchase transaction. However, unlike a secured loan, the right to securities is transferred from the seller to the buyer. Coupons (interest payable to the owner of the securities) that mature while the pension buyer owns the securities are usually passed directly on the seller of securities. This may seem counter-intuitive, given that the legal ownership of the guarantees during the pension agreement belongs to the purchaser. Rather, the agreement could provide that the buyer will receive the coupon, with the money to be paid in the event of a buyback being adjusted as compensation, although this is rather typical of the sale/buyback. In 2007-08, a rush to the renudisument market, where investment bank financing was either unavailable or at very high interest rates, was a key aspect of the subprime mortgage crisis that led to the Great Recession.  1) The tripartite market`s dependence on intra-day credit provided by clearing banks is negotiated individually between each pair of counterparties and therefore covers both tripartite and bilateral transactions. However, the CRC allows a client to sign a unique document that sets out rules and options for accepting tripartite security, so that they have access to all counterparties within the Clearstream CRC community.
