The Central Bank's main instrument is its repurchase agreements (repos) with credit institutions. Repos are a common form of central bank lending in many parts of the world. Trading involves the lender, i.e., the Central Bank, purchasing securities with a condition that the borrower will buy them back on a specified day, hence the term "repurchase agreements." The incentive for such transactions is the credit institutions' need for short-term liquidity. Central banks can take advantage of this need to influence market interest rates. In Iceland the Central Bank holds weekly auctions of 7-day repos. Credit institutions are required to put up qualified securities as collateral, i.e., securities carrying a treasury guarantee and with active market making on Iceland Stock Exchange. Auctions can be either in terms of fixed prices, i.e. when the Central Bank offers to buy an unlimited amount of securities at a specified yield, or the total amount of agreements on offer is announced and the return is determined by market conditions, at least within certain limits. Fixed-price auctions have been the rule so far in Iceland.

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
