Corruptions you should know about: Rehypothecation

Hypothecation from Wiki:

Hypothecation is the practice where a borrower pledges collateral to secure a debt. The borrower retains ownership of the collateral, but it is “hypothetically” controlled by the creditor in that he has the right to seize possession if the borrower defaults. A common example occurs when a consumer enters into a mortgage agreement, in which the consumer’s house becomes collateral until the mortgage loan is paid off.

The detailed practice and rules regulating hypothecation vary depending on context and on the jurisdiction where it takes place. In the US, the legal right for the creditor to take ownership of the collateral if the debtor defaults is classified as a lien.

Rehypothecation is a practice that occurs principally in the financial markets, where a bank or other broker-dealer reuses the collateral pledged by its clients as collateral for its own borrowing.

    In these days of austerity as well as relative anxiety about incurring debt, a lot of people balk resistant to the idea of utilizing a credit card to make purchase of merchandise or maybe pay for a holiday, preferring, instead to rely on a tried as well as trusted approach to making repayment – raw cash. However, if you possess cash on hand to make the purchase completely, then, paradoxically, this is the best time for them to use the credit card for several motives.
