Reverse Repurchase Agreement Uses Reverse repos are commonly used by businesses like lending institutions or investors to lend short-term capital to other businesses during cash flow issues.
The higher price represents the interest to the buyer for loaning money to the seller during the duration of the deal.
The asset acquired by the buyer acts as collateral against any default risk it faces from the seller. Short-term RRPs hold smaller collateral risks than long-term RRPs as over the long term, assets held as collateral can often depreciate in value, causing collateral risk for the RRP buyer.
The RRP transaction is used less often than a repo by the Fed, as a repo puts money into the banking system when it is short, whereas an RRP borrows money from the system when there is too much liquidity. The Fed conducts RRPs in order to maintain long-term monetary policy and ensure capital liquidity levels in the market.
Triparty RRPs Part of the business of repos and RRPs is growing, as third-party collateral management operators are providing services to develop RRPs on behalf of investors and provide quick funding to businesses in need. As quality collateral is sometimes difficult to find, businesses are taking advantage of these assets as a quality way to fund expansion and equipment acquisition through the use of triparty repos, resulting in RRP opportunities for investors.
This section of the industry is known as collateral management optimization and efficiency. In this way, each transaction can legally stand on its own without the enforcement of the other.
RRPs, on the other hand, have each phase of the agreement legally documented within the same contract and ensure the availability and right to each phase of the agreement.
Lastly, in an RRP, although collateral is in essence purchased, generally the collateral never changes physical location or actual ownership. If the seller defaults against the buyer, the collateral would need to be physically transferred.The North American Free Trade Agreement ("NAFTA") is a agreement between the United States, Canada and Mexico that lifted many restrictions on the imports and exports of agricultural products.
