NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--This week's Fitch Ratings Inside Credit newsletter focuses on the fire sale risks that the tri-party repo market poses to corporate bonds.
A deep dive into repo collateral shows that several characteristics of the underlying corporate bonds could amplify price dislocation during periods of market turmoil.
"Maturity mismatches, low trading frequency and `wrong way' risk could compound market volatility in the event of forced sales of collateral," says Robert Grossman, Managing Director of Macro Credit Research.
