SECURITIES ON LOAN
DATALEND OFFERS FOUR WAYS TO ACCESS:
- Raw data files that contain fees, utilization and other metrics across all securities on loan
- An intuitive and highly customizable Web-based user interface
- An Excel Add-In tool that supports functions and right-click functionality
- An Application Protocol Interface (API) that allows clients to access data directly from the database
DATALEND MAINTAINS THE HIGHEST DATA SECURITY STANDARDS TO PROTECT CLIENT DATA AND IDENTITY:
- Internet Protocol (IP) Security: All User IDs are tied to an approved organization IP address meaning a user cannot log-in from outside their corporate network.
- Beneficial Owner Confidentiality: Each agent lender assigns a code to their underlying beneficial owner client. DataLend does not know the identity of any beneficial owner.
- Segregation: Each client organization within DataLend is strictly segregated from other organization in our secure database tables. User IDs are tied directly to an organization.
