What is securities lending?

Securities lending is a loan or lending facility which is secured against a share portfolio or shares in a company. The lender takes custody or security over the shares and offers a lending facility against the security. These loans can be arranged quickly and offer a high degree of flexibility.

Many private banks offer loans securitized against share portfolios. These are referred to as lombard loans. They can offer great flexibility and attractive rates of interest.

Not many lenders specialise in loans securitized against a single company. The lenders that do offer this service have created a strong proposition on attractive lending terms.
