FACE TO FACE: DAIWA'S CHARLES DAY


Global Investor: Last year you signed up to EquiLend in Japan. Was this something you pushed through and why?

Charles Day: I wouldn't say I pushed it through necessarily. In fact, everyone in the team at Daiwa was in agreement that this was an important technology investment for the firm. Interestingly, we are the first local Japanese entity to use the EquiLend platform in Asia.

As you know EquiLend enables its clients to scale their businesses with efficiency on a global basis in all securities finance markets. It is used by borrowers and lenders throughout the world, automating formerly manual trading and post-trade processes. Using EquiLend's complete end-to-end services reduces the risk of potential errors and eliminates the need to maintain costly point-to-point connections - it thereby allows us to more efficiently focus on client needs.
