THE EQUILEND SOLUTION
BNY Mellon’s initial interest in EquiLend was to implement AutoBorrow services to complement its global trading business and enhance its post trade Contract, Billing, and Marks Comparison services. We’ve since increased our AutoBorrow volume by well over 100% and have been able to utilize auto-lending in all markets and asset classes, having the tools to keep pace as loan volumes increase.
EquiLend has therefore become a vital distribution channel for BNY Mellon’s vast supply of securities. With our recent build out of straight through processing for Trade2O, we look to increase our efficiencies and volume. Equilend’s flexibility and scalability will allow us to continue to increase usage and coverage through growing our current counterparties on the platform, complementing our goal to increase our international equity lending business.
“With Equilend’s flexibility and scalability, we will continue to increase usage of the trading and post trade services that we use on the platform which will add to our global distribution capabilities.”
