EquiLend, the securities finance trading platform and post-trade service provider, was named Best Trading Platform globally and Best Post-Trade Service Provider in the Americas at the Global Investor/ISF Equity Lending & Synthetic Finance Awards, which took place Thursday, September 19, in London.

DataLend, the securities finance data provider launched at the start of 2013, was named Best Data Provider globally.

Additionally, BondLend, serving the fixed income securities finance market, was nominated as Best Collateral Management System.

In the Global Investor/ISF Equity Lending & Synthetic Finance Awards, the magazine nominates a short-list of firms across four categories—Trading Platform, Post-Trade Service Provider, Data Provider, Collateral Management System—to be voted on by market participants in its Equity Lending Technology Survey. Securities finance market participants then rate those providers across several service categories, including ROI/cost efficiency, client reporting functionality, ability to tailor system/service, ease of integration, user interface, client service and innovation.

Brian Lamb, CEO of EquiLend, says: “EquiLend is built on innovation, and has been standardizing, automating and centralizing securities finance trading and operations since its launch in 2001. We are thrilled to be chosen again this year as the securities finance industry’s Best Trading Platform, and we are especially grateful to all of our clients who voted for us.”

DataLend, which went live in January 2013, provides cleansed, aggregated industry data on a give-to-get basis on around 40,000 unique securities representing more than $1.5 trillion in on-loan value.

Lamb continues: “Winning Best Data Provider globally proves that securities finance market participants consider DataLend the best provider of quality, global market data in the securities finance industry.”
