OUR PHILOSOPHY

OUR HISTORY

EquiLend's original business plan in 2001 called for providing statistically meaningful industry benchmarks and market data. At that time, no such offering was prevalent in the industry. Since then, the data services market has proven that a demand exists for these products and services. Ten years later, EquiLend initiated the build for a securities finance market data business, and in 2013 DataLend was rolled out globally. DataLend has been named the Best Market Data Provider Globally in the Global Investor/ISF Securities Finance Awards in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

WHAT WE DO

DataLend provides aggregated, anonymized, cleansed and standardized securities finance data covering all asset classes, regions and markets globally. DataLend operates on a give-to-get model, whereby clients must supply their securities finance transaction data in order to access DataLend’s aggregated industry data in return. DataLend offers four distinct services: the market data platform; Client Performance reporting for agent lenders; DataLend Portfolio for beneficial owners; and bespoke reporting services.
