NEW YORK, 09 May, 2012 –EquiLend announced today that the company will work with BNY Mellon to migrate the communication of Triparty Required Value (RQV) figures from email to a formalized process leveraging BNY Mellon's Triparty ADM (Automated Deal Matching) platform.

BNY Mellon requires a fully authenticated RQV instruction to collateralise the outstanding stock lending deals transmitted electronically or through a browser. The enhancement will allow EquiLend and BondLend users to increase the post trade efficiencies in securities lending trades and to reduce operational risk by automating the service.

EquiLend will enhance this service and assist client requests for RQV communication by leveraging the company's automated securities finance platform, thereby reducing systemic risks. This service will be offered to existing clients of EquiLend and BNY Mellon by the end of 2012.

Brian Lamb, CEO of EquiLend commented, "We are looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship with BNY Mellon's triparty collateral management business, particularly the opportunities and solutions that this partnership will create for the market." James Malgieri, Head of Global Collateral Management and Securities Clearance at BNY Mellon added, "We are pleased to be partnering with EquiLend to automate an end-to-end collateral management solution for our clients and the market."
