This paper highlights the changing collateral landscape and how it may shape the globaldemand/supply for collateral. We first identify the key collateral pools (relative to theold” collateral space) and associated collateral velocities. Post-Lehman and continuingnto the European crisis, some aspects of unconventional monetary policies pursued bycentral banks are significantly altering the collateral space. Moreover, regulatory demandsstemming from Basel III, Dodd Frank, EMIR etc., new net debt issuance, and collateralconnectivity via custodians (e.g., Euroclear/ Clearstream/ BoNY etc) will affect collateralovements.JEL Classification Numbers: G21; G28; F33; K22; G18; G15Keywords: velocity/re-use of collateral; central banks and QE; LCR; CCPs, custodians; CSDs;Author’s E-Mail Address:email@example.com
