‘Repo by the minute’ could reshape lending – but not quite yet

Blockchain-based platforms from JP Morgan and Broadridge offer smart contracts that enable intraday repo


Overnight repo is often described as a vital part of the financial market’s plumbing – and an upgrade to the pipework may be on the way.

Banks and fintech firms are using blockchain technology to create contracts that enable users to trade repo over periods of a few hours, paying interest by the minute rather than on an overnight basis. The service is already available on a handful of platforms hosted by the likes of JP Morgan and Broadridge. More are in development.
