Securities financing - securities lending: Certain firms need to borrow securities in order to cover their settlement obligations in the event of failed trades or taking short positions, or to take advantage of arbitrage and other opportunities. Institutions with large portfolios of securities are attractive to securities borrowers. Accordingly, global custodians provide securities lending services, typically with the custodian as agent matching its clients with approved borrowers. The custodian oversees the posting of collateral by the borrower, collects dividends and other economic benefits for the lender during the life of each loan and shares in the lending fee payable by the borrower. The lender can terminate a loan at any time, generally with recall notice of three business days.
