OUR PHILOSOPHY

OUR HISTORY

BondLend, the securities finance technology platform created specifically to support the fixed income borrowing, lending and repo community, was launched in 2010. As a division of EquiLend, the BondLend platform benefits from the values inherent in being part of a business that is committed to efficiency, innovation and the highest standards.

BondLend provides clients with a single point of access to the global securities financing community for the fixed income and repo markets, giving them greater liquidity, reduced risk and scalability. BondLend clients include major global players in the fixed income securities finance market.

WHAT WE DO

BondLend’s trading and financing services provide straight-through processing automation for borrowing, lending and repo using a common standards-based protocol and infrastructure processing. BondLend's Post-Trade Suite includes services for comparisons, returns, recalls and ALD. BondLend comparison services add efficiency and reduce the risk of potential collateral management errors. Comparison services are security-type agnostic and support global usage for cash and non-cash records. BondLend’s trading and post-trade services help drive down unit costs and increase efficiency, allowing firms to free up resources, increase trading volumes and reduce error rates all without additional cost.
