The Purple Issue XI

January 2023

Happy New Year, and welcome to the 11th issue of The Purple! 2022 was another banner revenue year for the securities lending community as the market generated nearly $10 billion in gross revenue for beneficial owners. In this edition, we provide a detailed overview of 2022 market conditions focusing on the key trends and drivers of revenue.

At EquiLend, our approach to data and analytics has evolved and grown significantly. In 2022, we formed our new Data and Analytics Solutions division focused on bringing new and actionable insights to the securities finance community and beyond. Read about our approach in “Reinventing Data & Analytics”.

Finally, we could not publish year in review without congratulating Women in Securities Finance on the group’s 5th anniversary in 2022 and on the amazing growth and success of the organization! The leaders, members and supporters of WISF had the opportunity to celebrate the group’s success by ringing bells at three of the world’s largest exchanges. We look forward to standing alongside WISF in the years to come.
