Strategic securities lending

Clearstream offers a comprehensive suite of strategic securities lending services which enable customers to maximise the use of their assets to generate additional yield. Customers can choose between principal lending and agency lending programmes.

  • ASLplus is a dynamic principal securities lending service that increases the lender’s portfolio yield. Customer risk is minimal as Clearstream is the principal and single borrower.
  • Agency lending via a central counterparty (CCP) such as Eurex Clearing is an attractive means of enhancing yield through strategic lending while minimising credit and systemic risk since the CCP is the legal counterparty to all loans.
  • Clearstream also offers standard agency lending services in which lenders are in full control of the risk – they are free to select their counterparties, impose tailored credit limits and set collateral eligibility criteria as well as haircuts and concentration limits.

Customers can maximise the benefits of securities lending by signing up to the entire suite of lending services under the Global Liquidity Hub.
