ICMA's European Repo Council Welcomes Acceptance of Credit Claims as Financial Collateral

ICMA’s European Repo Council has welcomed the vote and adoption by the European Parliament of Piia Noora Kauppi’s report on securities settlement services systems and financial collateral arrangements. The report recognises the importance of accepting credit claims as financial collateral, and extends the scope of credit claims as to what is acceptable for interbank transactions.

The European Repo Council Chairman, Godfried de Vidts, commented: “Increasing the pool of securities and credit available for the collateralisation of market transactions will reduce counterparty risks, contribute to market liquidity and strengthen overall market resilience. This is also consistent with the work which the ERC has undertaken and will continue with the Eurosystem to develop a secondary market in credit claims for collateralisation purposes.”
