Repledge under Swedish Law : On Pledging Collateral and Pledgee-rights (English)
Abstract [en]

The main purpose of this study is to analyse the concept of repledge (or sub-pledge, or, in a narrow sense, rehypothecation) under Swedish law.

A repledge typically occurs when B has received collateral from A under a pledge securing A’s obligations towards B, and B in his turn pledges that collateral (i.e. the pledged object) and/or his own rights as pledgee (“pledgee-rights”) to C as collateral for B’s obligations towards C. A repledge may be undertaken together with a pledge of B’s claim on A, or isolated from that claim. A will remain the owner of the collateral even after a repledge.

The main issues dealt with in this study are the following. 1) What is the object of the repledge – the collateral or B’s pledgee-rights? 2) Under what conditions, if any, may C refuse to release the collateral until he has received payment from either A or B? 3) What are the implications of the rule under Swedish law that B may not repledge on terms that are more severe than those under which A has pledged to B? 4) How is the repledge perfected, i.e. how are C’s (re)pledgee-rights secured against B’s creditors and against others than C to whom B may repledge the same collateral? 5) In which ways does an isolated repledge differ from a repledge that has been undertaken together with a pledge of B’s claim on A?

One significant conclusion is that it is of great importance for C to notify A of the repledge. Such a notification gives C a right to retain the collateral until payment has been received (and directs A’s payment to C, if B does not pay), and may also entail perfection of the repledge. However, many uncertainties still remain and there seems to be a need for clarifying legislation.
