ALD

AGENCY LENDER DISCLOSURE (ALD)

OVERVIEW

EquiLend’s ALD service acts as a conduit for data transfer between EquiLend counterparties globally. It also provides secure and timely transfer of principal loan data as a facility for approving underlying principals. This enables the credit prequalification of principals on EquiLend ALD, which in turn permits clients to calculate daily capital adequacy on their proprietary systems.


HOW ALD WORKS

Credit Prequalification
Borrowers must actively prequalify each principal lender with whom they will transact.

Daily Capital Calculation
Helps borrowers to perform regulatory capital calculations and credit exposure monitoring.

Comparison & Reporting
EquiLend produces comparison data with highlighted breaks. A selection of reports are available for review or download for the operations and credit groups.
