Equity lending and repo (ELR)
Equity lending involves the lending of an equity position to a borrower versus some form of collateral at an agreed upon margin and interest rate for the term of the loan. The primary motivation behind equity lending is a desire by the borrower to acquire a specific security in order to cover a market short position. The rate paid by the borrower for the stock is dependent upon the demand for the particular security. The owner/lender of the shares maintains ownership of the shares, and is entitled to receive substitute payments on all corporate actions that transpire during the course of the loan.
However, the lender does pass voting rights to the borrower of the stock for the duration of the loan. The lender maintains the right to ‘recall’ the stock loan at any time – in the event of a recall, the borrower is required to return the shares to the lender on or before the standard settlement for the country in which the equity trades. Equity lending structures can also be used for short term financing of long holdings. All of the obligations are documented under market standard documentation (GMSLA). Repo structures (see below) can also be employed for equity business using a GMRA.

Fixed income repo (FIR)
Repurchase agreements, commonly referred to as ‘repos’, are contracts involving the simultaneous sale and future repurchase of an asset. The buyer in effect lends the seller money for the fixed period of the agreement, and the terms of the agreement are structured to compensate the buyer. The seller agrees to buy back the asset at the same price at which they sold it on the future repurchase date. This buy and sell represents a temporary transfer of ownership. The seller pays the buyer interest on the implicit loan created by the transaction.

Linear equity derivatives (LED)
These are typically traded over-the-counter where the underlying asset can be a single stock, a basket of stocks or an equity index. The product at a basic level enables the client to gain long or short exposure to the underlying asset, which offers many advantages to trading in the physical securities. The specific products within LED include, but are not limited to:
Total return swap
Price return swap
Basket swap
Single stock futures
Options reversals and conversions.
