IHS Markit says term revenues for government bond loans up 20% in 2017

IHS Markit has released their Q2 2017 Securities Finance Quarterly Review

“Lending out government bonds has been one of the few industry bright spots of the last 12 months. While the rest of the securities lending industry has suffered from a general lack of demand and weak pricing power, government bonds have enjoyed a strong 20% increase in 25% revenue over the first half of the year. This bumper revenue haul is largely driven by two factors, derivatives clearing rules which are forcing financial market participants to source ever growing amounts of high quality collateral to post to central counterparties, and increasingly stringent balance sheet regulations which are forcing banks to lock in funding for even longer periods of time.”
