Here we introduce the functional nature of each of our solutions along with their operational benefit.  

EquiLend Spire: A Unique View of Your Securities Finance Activity

EquiLend Spire is a comprehensive, fully integrated, front-to-back-office solution designed to automate your securities finance activity. It provides a real-time view of your total inventory and offers transparency across the full trade lifecycle of your securities finance business.  

Clients can decommission disparate, antiquated systems by adopting this comprehensive full-service solution, covering the front, middle and back office. Built with connectivity and interoperability in mind, users can link seamlessly into multiple trading venues, including EquiLend NGT, and automate lifecycle events via EquiLend’s Post-Trade Suite or those of other technology providers in the market. 

Given its modular nature, EquiLend Spire can also be adopted to enhance your existing books and records system, enriching specific tasks such as fees and billing. Or, adopt the Trader Workflow to effect pre-trade automation. 

Modular and interoperable, EquiLend Spire streamlines the management of your operation with a bird’s eye view of your entire business. 

Trade Using Data-Driven Decision Making and Automation

Deliver the benefits of automation to your trading desk with the EquiLend Spire Trader Workflow, a suite of tools designed to support order management and provide pre-trade and point-of-trade decision-making and automation.  

Existing workflows are transformed, replacing manual tasks with automated processes across trading, re-financing and other lifecycle events, including recalls and returns, marks to market, billing and corporate event management.  

EquiLend Spire connects to EquiLend’s Data & Analytics Solutions, comprising market data, data analysis and performance measurement solutions, powered by real-time data uniquely aggregated from client submissions, EquiLend platforms and third-party sources. Data from EquiLend, from external vendors and from a client’s own systems can be ingested and stored within Spire, ensuring clients have a centralized view of the data most important to their business.  

 EquiLend Spire’s AI capabilities will transform your securities finance workflows and use the stored datasets to drive decision-making. Complex, configurable rule sets and a comprehensive pricing engine allow users to dictate behaviors at a granular level. EquiLend Spire empowers clients to make informed decisions. 

Clients may additionally leverage EquiLend’s RegTech Solutions offerings, enabling risk, credit and compliance automation. The EquiLend Spire protocol outputs cleansed, formatted data and connects seamlessly to SFTR and CSDR reporting providers. Supporting regulatory compliance for SFTR, CSDR, ALD and beyond, EquiLend RegTech Solutions helps clients to reduce market risk, reputational risk, operational risk and costs.  

View Your Trade Automation Differently
