The Purple Issue X

October 2022

We have reached a milestone! Welcome to the 10th issue of The Purple. In response to market demand, we are excited to continue to publish The Purple on a quarterly basis. In this issue, we focus on the most recent trends and delve deep into the data with a series of infographics that illustrate the global securities finance market. 

As market volatility continued alongside inflation and recessionary concerns, the securities lending markets experienced revenue growth of 12% in Q3 2022 versus Q3 2021, bringing year-to-date revenue in 2022 to $7.45 billion, up 8% over the first three quarters last year. Read all about the key drivers of revenue in Q3 Insights. 

We look forward to seeing you at all the upcoming industry conferences and events as we round out 2022. We are already looking forward to our next issue, where we will recap the full year 2022—which looks poised to be another strong year for our market.
