Repurchase transactions (repos) are a form of short-term (secured) borrowing/lending. They are widely used in financial markets as a source of short-term financing, as well as a way to invest surplus funds and manage liquidity.

The Global Master Repurchase Agreement (GMRA) is the main agreement used to document repurchase transactions. As such, it is a key contract used in financial markets.

This virtual classroom seminar will explain what repos are, how the GMRA works and discuss some of the commonly negotiated provisions.
