The International Securities Lending Association (ISLA), a leading financial services trade association has today published its latest Securities Lending Market Report. This is the 9th edition of the report and it builds upon the core themes of market transparency and driving the debate around the role of securities lending within the broader capital markets. The report considers the scope and depth of the securities lending markets globally including the key role that securitiesvlending plays around the mobilisation of High Quality Liquid Assets (HQLA) and how the slow down in quantitative easing from central banks could change this market. The report also provides a showcase for new thinking and market developments and in the latest edition there are contributions from Boaz Yaari at Sharegain and Habib Motani at Clifford Chance. Whilst both of these guest pieces are very different they are both very relevant and timely as we think about the future of the industry.’
