BBA Repo Rates

Repurchase agreements (Repos) are collateralised lending transactions. One party agrees to sell securities (e.g. gilts) to the other against a transfer of funds. At the same time the parties agree to repurchase the same or equivalent securities at a specific price in the future.

Bank of England and the European Central Bank use Repo as the major instrument of monetary policy.
