ISLA Publishes 14th Edition of the Securities Lending Market Report
Set against the backdrop of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this report highlights how our markets reacted, recovered and renewed themselves during the extraordinary events that continued to dominate the second half of 2020. It continues to provide a platform for us all to better understand how these and other forces are shaping the industry today, and the implications for market participants and other interested stakeholders alike. Once again, it considers the scope and depth of the securities lending markets globally, including the key role that they play in the context of broader capital markets liquidity, as well as the mobilisation of High Quality Liquid Assets (HQLA).
Our guest contributions, which come from Citi, Deutsche Bank, and the International Securities Services Association (ISSA), explore themes such as ETFs, and the important role of securities lending and repo during pandemic-related volatility.
Of note: the Future of Securities Services by Colin Perry of ISSA and William Hodash of DTCC.
