ABOUT US

“We know our clients are busy people, every day they are faced with complex tasks. The last thing they need are complicated, bit-part solutions. We aim to make life easier for our clients, yet at the same time provide cutting-edge technology that keeps them ahead. It’s about raising the bar and always being one step ahead. It’s about making our innovation, your advantage. ”

  • OVERVIEW

OUR HISTORY

In 2000, a group of 10 global financial institutions joined together, looking for ways to optimize efficiency in the securities finance industry by developing a standardized and centralized global platform for trading and post-trade services. EquiLend Holdings LLC was formed in 2001, and the platform went live in 2002.

Since our launch, we have increased our network to more than 100 clients, released a number of new functions and enhancements, introduced the platform to the global fixed income securities finance community (BondLend) and launched a global securities finance market data service (DataLend).

Owners include BlackRock, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan Clearing, J.P. Morgan Chase, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Northern Trust, State Street and UBS.

WHAT WE DO

Our platform was designed to process transactions on a global basis; the platform increases efficiency by standardizing, centralizing, and automating front- and back-office processes.

Our post trade services offer powerful post-trade tools that improve efficiency and mitigate risk. They integrate into a firm's existing environment and can be fully automated.

In short, we deliver global access to liquidity, reduced risk, and scalability.
