Hedge funds and REITS slash leverage, says Fed surveyThe Federal Reserve said that the share of hedge funds and real estate investment trusts (REITs) cutting their use of leverage was the highest since 2011, Around four fifths of the dealers said they had restricted the terms of lending to these leveraged market participants compared to other clients. Relative-valued fixed-income hedge funds and real estate investment trusts will often borrow funds from dealers through repo transactions to supersize their positions in the Treasurys and agency mortgage-backed bond market and amplify their trading gains. A repo is when a market participant will borrow cash and hand over highly rated securities as collateral. A seizure in trading for Treasurys and mortgage-backed bonds slammed these hedge funds and REITs back in March, amplifying the lack of liquidity in the bond market. The Federal Reserve's trillions of bond-buying later helped bring calm back to the market. The 10-year Treasury note yield is at 0.695%.
