In return, the borrower transfers other shares, bonds or cash to the lender as collateral and pays a borrowing fee. The aim of our securities lending is to help the financial markets keep functioning smoothly.Who is involved in a securities based loan?
Securities lending normally doesn't involve individual investors. Instead, it takes place between investment brokers and/or dealers who complete an agreement that outlines the nature of the loan—the terms, duration, fees, and collateral. Securities-based lending has a number of benefits for the borrower.What's the difference between securities based lending and non purpose lending?
The only restrictions are other securities-based transactions like buying shares or repaying a margin loan. Also known as "securities-based borrowing," "non-purpose lending" or "securities lending," securities-based lending is separate and distinct from "securities lending.".Who is the clearing agent for securities lending?
Typical securities lending requires clearing brokers, who facilitate the transaction between the borrowing and lending parties. The borrower pays a fee to the lender for the shares and this fee is split between the lending party and the clearing agent.
