Returns & Recalls

Returns & Recalls

The EquiLend Returns & Recalls services provide an efficient, automated way for borrowers and lenders to send return or recall notifications. 

How Returns & Recalls Works

A counterparty initiates a return/recall for a specific contract using a unique EquiLend ID, or may issue a more general return/recall for one or more securities

The recipient may acknowledge the receipt of a return/recall via the EquiLend screen or through messages integrated into their prop system

EquiLend provides reporting and tracking capabilities to monitor return/recall status online


  • Initiate returns/recalls via the browser, XLS file uploads or messaging

  • Set system to automatically acknowledge the return/recall or have active control

  • Ability to bilaterally agree on customized cut-off times by market
