Eligible collateral for liquidity insurance schemes
We lend through our market operations against collateral delivered by firms. This collateral has to be good enough so we can sell or keep it, if a counterparty fails to repay us.
For information on how to deliver securities in our market operations, please see our Collateral settlement and management page.
