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, 2017, and 2018.
