About The Event

Event Detail

Repo Market, Monetary Policy, & Liquidity

In early September 2019 there was an unusual spike in rates in the repurchase (“repo”) market causing a liquidity squeeze on broker-dealers that use repos to finance their portfolios of Treasury and agency securities.  It remains a mystery as to what catalyzed the liquidity squeeze.  The response by the Federal Reserve Bank and market participants has created more uncertainty. 

GIC is pleased to present two experts who will discuss what recent repo rate disruptions mean for monetary policy and market liquidity.  

Join GIC for our next Virtual Event on Thursday, October 10, 2019! Bob Eisenbeis, Vice Chairman & Chief Monetary Economist of Cumberland Advisors, and Chris Whalen, Chairman of Whalen Global Advisors LLC, will present on recent developments in the repo market and be available for a discussion Q&A. This call will be moderated by Bill Kennedy, Chief Investment Officer of Fieldpoint Private and GIC Board Member.

This virtual event will be conducted via the web and telephone dial-in from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m. EST. Participants will view a PowerPoint presentation online while listening to the speaker from a phone line. Attendees will participate from their offices or homes. Dial-in information will be distributed via email in the days leading up to the event.
