Fair Value Of Repurchase Agreements

Thus, the proposed ASU (1) specifies that «the financial asset initially transferred and the financial asset to be repurchased or repaid should offer the insured the same risks and the same rights, in order to place the propagated in the same economic position with the return of an asset substantially identical to the return of the identical asset» and (2) complements the implementation guidelines relating to the determination: The financial assets traded (especially asset-backed securities) are considered to be substantially the same.8 They are right to sell a guarantee to another party in the repo and declare themselves ready to buy it back at a fixed price in the future and is essentially an insured loan. Therefore, Lehman participated in sales accounting with a buyback agreement. This treatment does not reveal any contractual obligation to buy back in the balance sheet. Securities are debited upon returns, the call option is waived, and cash returned to the lender includes an interest payment. Presentations 1 and 2 illustrate this approach. In total, Repos Lehman helped remove up to $50 billion in debt from its balance sheet, with a very small impact, if any, on other accounts. The proposed guidance would eliminate the current CSA 860 guideline on pension financing operations. Under the current guidelines, there is a rebuttable presumption that an initial transfer and pension funding, envisaged at the same time, are linked and can therefore be considered a derivative if the transferor regains effective control of the assets initially transferred through buy-back financing. . . .
