Product Description

Review

"The most authoritative source on the repo market. Other texts I have seen totally lack Professor Choudhry's clarity of exposure and really important taste for technical detail." ---Matteo Regesta, Interest Rate Strategist, BNP Paribas, London

Format: Hardcover
Excellent practical handbook for money market traders and bankers
This is a very useful book for anyone who either deals in secured funding and repo or is a otherwise involved in its settlement or documentation. It is written in clear and accessible style and as well as a detailed description of the product it has case studies and worked examples that show how repo works. A real highlight of the book is the placing of repo in the context of wider financial markets and bank ALM, which was a real help to me. Another highlight is the in-depth coverage of material I couldnt find anywhere else, on repo and basis trading, and the repo legal agreement GMRA. Highly recommended for anyone who needs to know about Repo, collateral management and secured funding.

Just started reading it and very disappointed. On the very first pages of this thick book there is absolutely distracting error in the formula.
I wonder if the editor of this book has ever managed to pass school leaving certificate on elementary maths.

HASH(0x94debd50) out of 5 stars Practical and Essential Guide to Repo Markets 6 Feb. 2011
By A Courtney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
During the GFC every bank was using repo to raise liquidity, but this was more with their central bank. At the same time, central banks were increasing the range of assets that could be repoed. This highlighted the importance of the repo market to me, but at the same time I don't believe there are many true repo traders around.

How can one profitably trade from repo, i.e. know what assets will trade 'special'? After all, repo existed well before the GFC but to understand how to make real money from this market does not come down to simply working with your central bank. For this reason I needed to know more, and it is always best to ask someone who has worked in this market.

I have read Moorad Choudhry's "Bond and Money Markets" and "Bank Asset Liability Management" books (both of which I highly recommend), so knowing his experience and clear explanations, with real market examples (i.e. there are a lot of bloomberg screen dumps in all his books) made it an easy choice to purchase this repo book over others.

The "Repo Handbook" starts with a market background of bonds and money markets and evolves into the functions of repo, covering trading, hedging and it's involvement with ALM. I personally prefer the trading examples as I feel one can understand Repo's uses as a market, rather than just reading a few formulas.

Once again Choudhry has written a very practical and essential book for today's market.

By JaneS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Clear, concise explanation of both the theory and the mechanics of repurchase agreements. The book shows both sides of the trade, i.e. lending the security or investing cash, and makes distinctions between repos and a securities lending desk.

By K. Chen - Published on Amazon.com

I like this book. Fundamental knowledge of money market and repo instruments are explained in great details. And it is beyond just a 'handbook'. It covers practical topics such as trading and hedging strategies for repo, and institutional implications in repo trading. Strongly recommend this book for all the people interested in repo market, whether you are a beginner, or experienced practitioner.
