This Repo course examines the core concepts of short-term funding. We will look at the different types of Repos, alongside who would use them and why, while assessing the risks of the trade along the way. From the nuances of what motivates a Repo trade, to how to calculate payments, we will go through the broadest concept to the smallest detail.
