Overview

Although there is no consensus on what a green repo is, you still have repos that finance green objectives. The use of green, or brown, collateral does not make a difference to whether a repo is green or not. However, Richard outlines 5 basic principles to use in assessing green repos.

Key learning objectives:

  • Learn what a green repo is

  • Understand why greenness or lack thereof in a collateral does not make a repo ‘green’ or ‘brown’

  • Identify key aspects of a repo that differentiate it from traditional green financing
