Agent lenders in the Direct and Peer to Peer securities finance markets (Premium)
Securities lending agents will be critical players in the Direct and Peer to Peer (P2P) markets. In securities lending, investors are looking for indemnification to support their loans. In repo, investors look for service providers to manage the operations and valuation of a transaction and perhaps to help with credit due diligence. The business is still small, but agent lenders are watching carefully to evaluate when and where they have opportunities to grow.
