Financial assets that have been sold under a repurchase agreement or lent under an agreement to return them, are not derecognised when substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership are retained by Swiss Life. If the transferee has the right to sell or repledge the financial assets given as collateral, they are reclassified in the balance sheet as financial assets pledged at their respective carrying amounts.
