Trustees Guide to Securities Lending

Background & Objectives


Pension Funds increasingly are using Securities Lending as a necessary means to increase Fund income. To most Trustees, discussions in this technical area are shrouded in mystery and so the Returns, Risks, Issues and Procedures are difficult to entertain.


This half day seminar explains what Securities Lending is and gives an overview as to the rationale, the Lenders and Borrowers, Risks and Returns available. While no prior knowledge is assumed of this topic, a basic knowledge of Equities and Fixed Income is needed.


A more detailed 1 day course is provided for those requiring more technical detail.
