EquiLend and The Risk Management Association (RMA) have joined forces with domestic and international market participants active in Latin America to produce the second annual Latin America Securities Finance User Guide.
The Latin America Securities Finance User Guide 2020 reviews the current and future state of Latin American securities finance markets including Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Argentina, Chile and Colombia. It covers in detail the various markets’ securities finance infrastructure, regional innovations and illustrative market data.
The user guide is a comprehensive resource for agent lenders, broker-dealers, CSDs, CCPs, exchanges, beneficial owners, hedge funds, lawyers, regulators and consultants interested in the Latin American securities finance markets.
Brian Lamb, CEO, EquiLend, said in a statement: “We are seeing positive momentum in the burgeoning securities finance markets of Latin America and are excited for the growth taking place across the region. As the regulatory environment, technological infrastructure and market participation advances across Latin America, countries across the region are increasingly recognizing the benefits of an active securities finance industry.”
Fran Garritt, director of Global Markets Risk and Securities Lending, RMA, said in a statement: “The guide is meant to be a ‘living document’ that will encourage productive discussions on how foreign investors can comfortably execute their investment strategies, and allow the industry to address issues that will transform Latin America into an increasingly robust securities lending market.”
