- Central Counterparty Clearing and Systemic Risk Insurance in OTC Derivatives Markets (with Thor Koeppl) Revue d'Economie Financiere - The Unregulated Finance - 2012

- A Theory of Repurchase Agreements, Collateral Re-Use and Repo Intermediation (with Piero Gottardi and Vincent Maurin)
- We show that repurchase agreements (repos) arise as the instrument of choice to borrow in a competitive model with limited commitment. In equilibrium, lenders choose to re-use collateral. This increases the circulation of the asset and generates a “collateral multiplier” effect. Intermediation by dealers may endogenously arise in equilibrium, with chains of repos among traders.

- We present a model of central counterparty clearing and derive some policy implications if regulations are put in place.
