Abstract: The paper explains modern liquidity crisis and financial contagion from shadow banking system to money market in 2007-2009. Liquidity shock was massive due to high connectivity with the quality of underlying (securitized) assets. Thus, the problem of solvency was main driver of the liquidity crisis on the interbank market. Counterparty risk was transmitted to the money market through various channels: direct or indirect exposition to shadow banking, confidence channel, asset price channel and wholesale funding run. The structure of paper is following: first part analyzes financial market infrastructure of shadow banking, wholesale funding (originate-to-distribute) model and ABCP market; the second one describes financial market turmoil and contagion to the money market. Liquidity crisis strongly hit many segments of the money market: unsecured money market, repo market, FX swap market, Eurodollar market. Liquidity crisis was severe due to strong correlation between counterparty risk and liquidity premium as well between funding and market liquidity. Monitoring of the main causes of the liquidity crisis in his early stages is important for the fast reaction by central banks in terms of collateral quality and quantity of the reserve´s supply.
