Kiefer and Judith G. Guidelines Charles E. Bhattacharya, Paul Jacob, and William S. Mann INDEX Preface ecurities finance involves secured borrowing and lending transactions that are motivated for various reasons such as obtaining securities for settlement, financing inventory positions, and generating incremental income by lending securities. At one time, securities finance consisted of securities lending arrangements for equities and bonds and repurchase agreements repos for bonds.
While these two forms of securities finance still dominate today, other methods commonly used include contracts for differences, equity swaps, and single stock futures as well as equity repos. The purpose of this book is to provide investors and traders with an enhanced understanding of the various arrangements in the securities finance market.
It is our hope that the knowledge gained will enable readers to make a more informed choice about their participation in this expanding market. The book is divided in three parts. The 12 chapters in Part One cover securities lending, also commonly referred to as stock lending. Chapter 1 by Mark Faulkner describes securities lending as well as benefits for lenders and borrowers of securities participating in the market, the different types of securities lending transactions, mechanics of the transaction, the role of intermediaries, and the risks faced by the lenders of securities.
The critical role of securities finance in capital markets is discussed by the staff of State Street in Chapter 2. Finding the most suitable route to participate in the securities lending market and the issue of selecting a suitable counterparty are the subjects of Chapter 3 by Mark Faulkner, focusing on the lending of international equities with regard to both lending and nonlending institutions.
The traditional programs available to institutional investors seeking to enter the securities lending market are also reviewed by Anthony Nazzaro in Chapter 4. An innovative program offering an alternative route to the market is the auction process developed by eSecLending. At one time, simply computing the revenues produced by a securities lending program was adequate in assessing the potential benefits for market participants S ix x Preface and for managing a program.
Today, this is not adequate. Rather, market participants evaluate the decision to participate and manage the process based on the risk-adjusted expected return. To help understand the risks in a securities lending transaction involving bonds, Chapter 6, prepared by one of the editors, provides background information about the characteristics of these securities and their risks. In the United States, programs involving lending against cash collateral are the most common form of collateral management model and recently cash-based lending has become more popular outside the United States.
In cash-based lending programs, it is critical that liquidity risks be controlled. In Chapter 9, Peter Economou explains how reporting performance on a risk-adjusted basis can provide lenders with the information for proactively managing the securities lending process. The participants in a securities lending transaction must consider legal, regulatory, tax, and accounting issues. The last three chapters in Section One deal with these issues. In Chapter 10, Charles Dropkin explains how to develop effective guidelines for managing legal risks for U.
He identifies certain key legal and regulatory issues that market participants must understand and follow in order to have an effective compliance program and describes mechanisms that can be included in programs for reducing insolvency risk. The Federal income tax consequences of securities lending transactions are detailed in Chapter 11 by Richard Shapiro. Statement of Financial Accounting Standard is the primary accounting literature on securities lending transactions.
In determining the accounting treatment, the basic concept is control. In Chapter 12, Susan Peters offers guidance regarding the recording and financial treatment of loaned securities. Part Two covers bond financing by means of repurchase agreements repos.
The first chapter in this section, Chapter 13, prepared by the editors, explains a repo transaction, the types of repo transactions, and the mechanics of the transaction. While the focus of Chapter 13 is the U. Because of the unique characteristics of agency mortgage-backed securities MBS , a special form of repo has developed, dollar rolls.
Before the editors describe dollar rolls in Chap- xi Preface ter 16, one of the editors provides an overview of agency MBS in Chapter A historical and analytical framework for assessing the effect of dollar rolls on the MBS market and strategies employed by asset managers including valuation dynamics is explained in Chapter 17 by Anand Bhattacharya, Paul Jacob, and William Berliner.
Part Three contains only one chapter Chapter 18 coauthored by the editors and describes alternative vehicles to securities lending for equity financing. These alternatives are equity repo and linear derivative contracts i.

Faulkner Managing Director Spitalfields Advisors ecurities lending—the temporary transfer of securities on a collateralized basis—is a major and growing activity providing significant benefits for issuers, investors, and traders alike.
These are likely to include improved market liquidity, more efficient settlement, tighter dealer prices and, perhaps, a reduction in the cost of capital. This chapter describes securities lending, the motivation for lenders and borrowers to participate, the role of intermediaries, market mechanics, and the risks faced by the lenders of securities. For the period of the loan the lender is secured by acceptable assets delivered by the borrower to the lender as collateral.
Securities lending today plays a major part in the efficient functioning of the securities markets worldwide. Yet it remains poorly understood by many of those outside the market.

Should the lender wish to vote on securities on loan, it has the contractual right to recall equivalent securities from the borrower. Appropriately documented securities lending transactions avoid taxes associated with the sale of a transaction or transference fees. This collateral can be cash or other securities or other assets. The system automatically selects and delivers collateral securities, meeting pre-determined criteria to the value of the cash plus a margin from the account of the cash borrower to the account of the cash lender and reverses the transaction the following morning.
This specialist agent typically a large custodian bank or international central securities depository receives only eligible collateral from the borrower and hold it in a segregated account to the order of the lender. Typically the borrower pays a fee to the tri-party agent.

Thakor, Fleming, Michael J. Martin, A. Duffie, Darrell, Bester, Helmut,
A repurchase agreement , also known as a repo , RP , or sale and repurchase agreement, is a form of short-term borrowing, mainly in government securities. The dealer sells the underlying security to investors and, by agreement between the two parties, buys them back shortly afterwards, usually the following day, at a slightly higher price. The repo market is an important source of funds for large financial institutions in the non-depository banking sector, which has grown to rival the traditional depository banking sector in size. Large institutional investors such as money market mutual funds lend money to financial institutions such as investment banks , either in exchange for or secured by collateral , such as Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities held by the borrower financial institutions. In , a run on the repo market, in which funding for investment banks was either unavailable or at very high interest rates, was a key aspect of the subprime mortgage crisis that led to the Great Recession.
