The Tri-Party General Collateral Rate (TGCR) is a measure of rates on overnight, specific-counterparty tri-party general collateral repurchase agreement (repo) transactions secured by Treasury securities. General collateral repo transactions are those for which the specific securities provided as collateral are not identified until after other terms of the trade are agreed.
The TGCR is calculated as a volume-weighted median of transaction-level tri-party repo data collected from the Bank of New York Mellon. Each business day, the New York Fed publishes the TGCR on the New York Fed website at approximately 8:00 a.m. ET.
For more information on the TGCR’s publication schedule and methodology, see Additional Information about Reference Rates Administered by the New York Fed.
