Securities Borrowing and Lending

  • Securities Borrowing and Lending (SBL) allow individual investors to earn fees by lending their stock holdings to Central Depository (CDP) who, in turn, lend them to registered borrowers.
  • Investors who become Lending Participants may still sell their securities during trading hours, even if their securities are on loan.  There is no need for investors to recall their loaned securities, as CDP will deem the act to sell, transfer or dispose of your securities as a notice to terminate the loan.
  • There are currently close to 600 securities eligible for SBL with plans for the inclusion of Listed REITs and Business Trusts to the eligible securities in May 2012.
  • There are currently 11,600 participating investors lending through SBL to 18 financial institutions. There is no cost to register as a lending participant which can be done through CDP.  
    With the inclusion of Reits and business trusts in SBL in May 12, we can expect more volatility in reits and biz trusts too as they can now be shorted.
