When a government or company is in need of money, it issues what is called a bond, which enables it to raise funds to finance itself.
A bond is a debt.
A company needs funds to pay for its growth and a government needs funds to cover its expenditures.
When you hold a bond, you have effectively lent money to the bond issuer in exchange for which it promises to return your principal plus a yield based on a payment schedule communicated in advance.
The repo market provides an efficient source of money market funding by offering deposits secured against high-quality liquid assets. Based in Paris & London our team provides prices and liquidity on main European government bonds but also on covered, supranational, agency and corporate bonds as an effective answer to the needs of our customers.
