OPEN REPURCHASE AGREEMENT is a repurchase agreement with no set maturity date and often a rate of return that fluctuates on a daily basis, depending on market rates. The yield on this type of investment is higher than on a daily repurchase agreement because the agreement often runs several days and the dealer usually requires some short notice before the investor can withdraw funds.
