The EquiLend Ecosystem:
Forming Connections Through Solutions

July 5, 2023

EquiLend’s Kevin McNulty, Head of RegTech Solutions, sat down with Securities Finance Times to reflect on current challenges faced by market participants and how EquiLend is meeting these concerns with solutions, such as our new Onboard+ solution, designed to reduce onboarding times of beneficial owners with tools that provide both lenders and borrowers with unprecedented insight into the pipeline of new funds coming to market. Kevin also discusses the move to T+1 settlement and how EquiLend is ready to support firms in meeting the demands of the shorter settlement cycle with our suite of Trading and Post-Trade Solutions expediting each stage of the entire trade lifecycle. On the digital transformation front, Kevin dives into our 1Source initiative, now entering the pilot phase, which will facilitate the creation of a single immutable record on a distributed ledger for every securities finance transaction, eliminating the need for firms to reconcile their own representations of the same transaction entirely.
