BOJ to Accept Asset-Backed Commercial Paper as Collateral from Tuesday

Earlier this month, The BOJ announced a number of steps to ensure the smooth functioning of the country’s money markets, including providing greater access to U.S. dollar funds through a swap agreement with the U.S. Federal Reserve Board, and broadening the kinds of collateral the BOJ would accept for repurchase agreement transactions.
