Additional transparency is a goal of all market regulations. This could result in different scenarios around reporting or possibly central clearing of securities lending transactions. The opportunities regulations bring with regard to collateralizing cleared derivatives contracts could generate increased demand to borrow high quality assets.
“Lenders are optimistic about the future of securities lending, while borrowers continue to be skeptical due to deleveraging and volatility,” says Medy Agami, Analyst with Celent’s Securities & Investments group and author of the report.
This report assesses market dynamics and regulatory developments by geography. It also provides predictions on the future direction of the securities lending market and direction for various market segments.
