This product offers a number of advantages, not least the possibility of satisfying an urgent need for liquidity instantly and at any time, on very advantageous terms, given the quality of the securities sold under repurchase agreements. What’s more, repurchase agreements enable you to significantly improve the returns on your company’s assets, by purchasing long-term securities with more attractive yields, without running the risk of liquidity.
