J.P. Morgan executes first transaction of Hong Kong Monetary Authority Repo Financing Platform

J.P. Morgan has executed Hong Kong's first HKD tri-party repo transaction between Bank of China (Hong Kong) Limited ( and Barclays Bank plc, the first such trade following the launch of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority's (HKMA) cross-border collateral management service in June this year.

Morgan platforms by mobilizing U.S. Treasuries against HKD liquidity.
