The repurchase agreement (repo) experts at Synovus can work with
your banker to craft a safe, short-term investment alternative that
combines the security, liquidity and yield you need.
Repurchase Agreements Team
An integral part of state and local government investment programs, repurchase agreements are paired financial
contracts between investors and dealers or banks. These simultaneous transactions, often simply referred to as
“repos,” offer an alternative or supplement to money market mutual funds, other money market instruments or local
government investment pools.
Dedicated short-term financing expertise
Transactions are fully collateralized, meaning they are secured with collateral whose market price exceeds the
notional amount at the time of the engagement. (Since Synovus requires dealers to provide collateral valued at 102%
of the cash investment, most transactions are over-collateralized.) The following general features can help you and
your banker decide if a repo is right for you.
Minimum investment is $250,000.
Terms of the repo can be structured for overnight (the most common) or up to 180 days out.
Daily principal amount of the repo can be increased or decreased to match your cash flow.
Interest can be paid out daily or reinvested in the repo.
With few exceptions, U.S. Treasuries and agency mortgages are used as collateral. The repurchase agreement team
can provide your bank contact with current rates, which change daily.
