About the project

In response to market demand, B3 is launching Brazilian Federal Government Bond Lending and Repos with CCP, allowing these securities to be transferred to a counterparty and remain available for free circulation provided the collateral required for each transaction is deposited.

The new products will facilitate the entry of new investors into this market, the execution of new trading strategies and the use of new risk management models thanks to the CCP service offered by B3.

The use of the CCP ensures the settlement of repos, optimizes capital allocation and enables the equalization of counterparty credit risk, as all parties involved operate through the clearing house B3, which has the methodology for calculating the risk of closing risk assessment (CORE) – one of the most modern and secure systems in the world.

New products will be available in the B3 environment. Custodianship of federal government bonds remains with Selic.

Please note that the release of this product will not impact business processes already established between B3 participants.
