Data Explorers and eSecLending in partnership with the Melbourne Centre for Financial Studies are pleased to invite you to the Australia Securities Lending Seminar, which will be held in two locations for half day duration.
For many years securities lending has been a tool to enhance revenues for superannuation funds and asset managers, but in the last 18 months, globally, and in Australia, securities lending has hit the headlines.
We are pleased to present a mixture of discussion, debate and information that will enable senior speakers and academics (aligned with a curious audience) to meet the subject head on. What is the link between short selling, margin lending and securities lending?
We have teamed up with the Melbourne Centre for Financial Studies to review the academic evidence.
Leading practitioners discuss the reasons they borrow securities and beneficial owners shed light on what they have learned over this period of volatility. We examine the future of securities lending and short selling regulation – what is the global context and what will happen in Australia?
Finally, for those who are new to this industry or have only read the headlines, we start the day with a summary of the global and domestic marketplace and its mechanics.
- #1 The fundamentals of securities lending including trends in Australia and around the globe
- #2 The regulators’ perspective with a focus on transparency, short selling and regulation in Australia
- #3 Borrowing demand drivers and trading strategies
- #4 The beneficial owners’ perspective including lessons learned and best practices going forward
