1993 SNA Update Information - AEG recommendations for issue:
Repurchase agreements

Issue description
Issue description in [English] | [French] | [Russian] | [Spanish]
A repurchase agreement (repo) involves the sale of securities or other assets with a commitment to repurchase equivalent assets at a specified price. The market for repos has evolved since the SNA guidelines were prepared; in particular, contrary to what the 1993 SNA suggests, the right to on-selling has become almost universal. The treatment of repos in 1993 SNA and the Balance of Payments Manual, fifth edition, is similar to that of a collateralized loan or as other deposits if repos involve liabilities classified under national measures of broad money. Should the 1993 SNA treatment be revised?
