SGSS has received the “Europe, Middle East and Africa Lender” award (weighted category, Group 2) during Global Investor / ISF* magazine’s 2013 Equity Lending awards ceremony which was held in London at the end of September 2013.

SGSS was named “Lender to watch” in Europe and “Most innovative” in the overall European and Asia Pacific categories and voted second best in Overall Operations (weighted). By category, SGSS was ranked first in Fees and Billing, second in each of the three categories of Collateral Management, Corporate Actions, Income / Dividend Collection, and third in Trade Support / Settlement.

This annual survey gives securities borrowers and lenders the opportunity to evaluate their peers based on their securities lending experience in four separate regions - Europe, the Americas, Asia Pacific and Africa/Middle East and is a major performance benchmark for the equity financing industry.

These results underline SGSS’ continued commitment to partnering with clients in order to provide the most effective access to markets.
