Standard Chartered Bank and eSecLending partner for agency securities lending
May 7, 2019

Standard Chartered has entered into a partnership with eSecLending, the specialist independent securities lending agent, to provide agency securities lending to its global institutional investor clients on both a custody and non-custody (third-party) basis.

Under the partnership, clients of Standard Chartered will benefit from eSecLending's existing securities lending programme infrastructure, delivering a full front to back office service, including the auction platform, customized programmes, and performance. The whole service package will be available to both existing custody clients of Standard Chartered, as well as those clients that hold assets in custody outside Standard Chartered.

Margaret Harwood-Jones, Global Head, Securities Services, Transaction Banking at Standard Chartered said: "Securities Lending is an important addition to the suite of products offered within our Securities Services business, and a key component of our long-term growth strategy.

"In partnering with eSecLending, we can offer our clients a truly differentiated service, from a best-in-class provider, backed by the strength of the Bank's balance sheet. As the marketplace continues to evolve, we are looking forward to helping our clients in optimizing their securities lending programmes."
