SECURITIES LENDING & MARKET MAKING COURSE

In the aftermath of the market crash, regulators looked carefully at the impact of short selling and the ability to facilitate this strategy by borrowing securities. With securities lending being essential for liquidity in the markets and settlement, together with the ability to generate yield enhancement, it is important that the process flows and controls issues are clearly understood. Effective management of the process of securities lending and repurchase agreements is essential to reassure stakeholders and risk managers but also in providing the vital liquidity in the markets and in settlement. There is no better time than now to gain a thorough practical overview of these processes. This course will provide you with an in-depth grounding of the purpose and use; the processes associated and the controls over and management of securities financing. We will look at the implications of this in terms of both lenders and borrowers but also at the importance of the use of borrowed securities in managing settlement issues and in generating yield enhancement.
