OUR PHILOSOPHY

OUR HISTORY

In 2000, a group of 10 global financial institutions joined together, looking for ways to optimize efficiency in the securities finance industry by developing a standardized and centralized global platform for trading and post-trade services. EquiLend Holdings LLC was formed in 2001, and the platform went live in 2002. More than 100 firms globally leverage EquiLend's suite of services.

WHAT WE DO

EquiLend's services are designed to increase efficiency and automation in the global securities finance marketplace. From our global trading platform (NGT) and our Post-Trade Suite, to our market data (DataLend) and EquiLend Clearing Services businesses, our products deliver global access to liquidity, scalability and reduced risk.
