Securities' Lending and Borrowing
Securities' Lending and Borrowing describes the market practice whereby securities are temporarily transferred by one party (the lender) to another (the borrower) via an approved intermediary.
The Borrower is obliged to return them either on demand or at the end of an agreed term and also has an option to early return. Lender may recall securities at any time within normal market settlement cycle.
SLB is a major and growing activity which provides significant benefits for issuers, investors and traders alike. SLB helps in improving market liquidity, more efficient settlement, tighter dealer prices and perhaps a reduction in the cost of capital.
