Securities Lending

Securities Lending provides products and services to The Risk Management Association member institutions involved in agent lending functions within the securities-based lending industry. We host several round table peer-sharing events, two major conferences, three industry training programs, and one major forum.

As an industry leader in providing securities lending conferences and round tables, The Risk Management Association is proud to represent the financial services industry and bank regulatory agencies, acting as a liaison for member institutions as they manage new legal and regulatory requirements in this ever-changing economy.

In support of that role, The Risk Management Association has created several councils and committees—including the Securities Lending Council and the Securities Lending Operations Group—to promote sound lending practices among its members and the industry.

RMA's Securities Lending Council issues its Quarterly Aggregate Composite, exclusive to our website; it is the only composite of its kind. Provided by multiple financial institutions, the survey data is presented for primary lending markets worldwide with cash-collateral reinvestment data aggregated to reflect reinvestment return, interest-rate sensitivity, liquidity, credit tiering, and instrument types for both U.S. dollar and euro currency collateral.

The Risk Management Association Securities Lending Operations Group works on initiatives to improve the operations segment in the industry. The group has partnered with SIFMA and ISLA in reviewing various aspects of operations to enhance and promote good, sound operating procedures for both lenders and broker-dealers. Currently, the group is working on several topics including third party best practices, operation surveys, and corporate actions. Joint initiatives with SIFMA are billing payment timeline and reconciliation, contract compare, and recall/buy-ins.
