During times of crisis it becomes evident that most, if not every investment portfolio will contain some amount of short term U.S. Treasury securities for the following reasons; 

1. Provide a safe liquid position if cash is needed.

2. Provide a guaranteed return of principal as well as an agreed upon return on principal.

3. Provide a hedge against potential losses on riskier investments.

Greenberg Traurig White Paper

The Alpha PLUS Yield Enhancement Process – Legal Issues for Beneficial Owners.


This GT White Paper discusses legal and regulatory issues relevant to beneficial owners of U.S. Treasury securities who are interested in pursuing yield enhancement strategies. It provides some legal and regulatory context for beneficial owners to understand Alpha PLUS, a yield enhancement process that uses master repurchase agreements to effect substitutions of collateral—in this case, U.S. Treasury securities that mature within a 16-day radius—that the beneficial owner has deemed to be of equivalent yield. Each collateral substitution earns the beneficial owner a fee from a designated counterparty, as provided in an annex to the repo agreement. As discussed below, we have concluded that collateral substitutions under Alpha PLUS are not purchases or sales, are not hypothecations or rehypothecations, do not violate SEC Rule 2a-7, and do not require indemnification from a custodian or an agent lender.
