In a competitive environment for buy-side clients, Securities Lending services can provide a way to increase profitability -from a few annual to tens of basis points. The gains from Securities Lending activity depend on several factors; primarily the nature of the assets lent and the market conditions (supply and demand for a given asset class, or for a given security, may vary in time.)

Securities Lending by SGSS has a track record on the largest perimeter of securities older than 15 years, allowing to improve client’s investment profitability for large and medium size actors (asset managers, sovereign funds, insurance companies, other asset owners...).
