The repo market is pivotal to other financial markets, particularly those in bonds and derivatives, as it is the main source of financing for dealers. Repo, being a collateralised loan provides a secure means of lending and, for borrowers, an economic means of leverage.

Despite the European repo market's importance it is hard to obtain figures on its size. The ICMA surveys are the only authoritative source of data on the size and composition of the European repo market. The surveys are conducted by the ICMA Centre at the University of Reading in the UK, at the request of the ICMA European Repo and Collateral Council (ERCC), a body established under the auspices of ICMA to promote and represent banks active in Europe’s repo markets.

For the most recent survey a sample of financial institutions in Europe were asked for the value of their repo contracts that were still outstanding at close of business on a single day in June 2016. Replies were received from 67 financial institutions, representing the majority of significant players in the European repo market. All institutions who participate in the survey automatically receive, in confidence, a list of their rankings in the various categories of the survey.

The results of this, the thirty-first semi-annual survey of the repo market in Europe set the baseline figure for market size at EUR 5,379 billion.

The next survey will report the value of repo contracts still outstanding at close of business on 7 December 2016.
