Rehypothecation Agreement

Aggressive brokers can move money and have actually done so by foreign subsidiaries, subsidiaries or other parties in a way that has allowed them to effectively remove the limits of the rehypotheque. This means that it is not only the property you have borrowed that could be confiscated. A client should focus on ways to minimize the safety of their obligations. Since the risk of rehypotheque is primarily related to the insolvency of the secured party, the Chairman may consider subordinating the right to the continuation of a certain credit rating by the insured party or its absence of delay in relation to the transaction. If the insured party does not meet any of these conditions, it would be required to terminate the rehypothecating and acquire pre-mortgaged security. The assumption is a common feature of consumer contracts with mortgages – the debtor legally owns the house, but until the mortgage is repaid, the creditor has the right to take possession (and perhaps even possession) – but only if the debtor does not follow the repayments. [1] If a consumer takes an additional loan against the value of his mortgage (commonly called “second mortgage”), up to the current value of the home minus unpaid repayments), the consumer takes the mortgage himself – the creditor can still confiscate the house, but in this case, the creditor will be responsible for the unpaid mortgage debt. Sometimes consumer goods and business equipment can be purchased on credit contracts with assumption – the goods are legally held by the borrower, but again, the creditor can seize them if necessary. In the United Kingdom, there is no limit to the amount of a client`s assets that can be rehypothecated[3] unless the client has negotiated an agreement with his broker that includes a limit or prohibition. In the United States, re-mortgage is limited to 140% of a customer`s balance. [4] [5] [6] In a first-class brokerage contract, the prime broker financed the purchase of a client`s assets and holds that asset, the guarantee being considered a guarantee for the repayment of the amount he lent to the client to purchase it.

As a deposit bank, the first broker has a legal title, but has no useful interest in the asset. It is therefore rather as if the client had “mortgaged” the assets to the first broker under a New York CSA law. Therefore, the term rehypothecation, to describe the process by which the prime broker takes and sells this asset to bear the costs of its financing, with a conditional obligation to deliver something identical on demand, is not an unheard of distortion of the facts of the event. There is a world of difference between mortgage and agent credit, although THE V V (vaguely) OPCVM threatens to consider them as different varieties of the same. Rehypothecation was common until 2007, but hedge funds became much more cautious following the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers and the credit crunch that followed in 2008-09. In the United States, the re-library of broker guarantees is limited to 140% of the amount of the loan granted to a client pursuant to SEC Rule 15c3-3. Rehypothecation is a practice in which banks and brokers use assets for their own purposes that end up as collateral for their clients. Customers who authorize the surrender of their security may be compensated either by a reduction in credit charges or by a discount.

In a typical example of remhypotheque, securities that end up as collateral by a hedge fund are used by brokerage to secure their own transactions and transactions. So that`s exactly what rehypothecation allows you to do. But at a price: the pawnbroker who owned the assets and who was able to recover it in the event of bankruptcy (subject to the execution of his outstanding debt to you) now becomes your unsecured creditor for the return of the corresponding assets.
