Effective 30 March 2020 the Bond Lending Facility and the Repo Facility will be merged into one operation and this will be known as the Bond Lending Facility.

Bonds lent through the Bond Lending Facility will be lent at the Official Cash Rate (OCR) less 50 basis points.

This window will be open daily between 3:00pm and 4:00pm.
