Who regulates the Securities Lending Market? The residency and type of entity of the lending institution usually determines the rules under which lending can take place. For example, in the UK if the lender institution is a Collective Investment Scheme, Insurance Company or Pension Fund, the FSA's regulations on securities lending will apply. A similar situation will exist for lender institutions based outside the UK, where a local regulator or Central Bank may stipulate specific lending regulations. However, we would always recommend you consult a professional advisor prior to commencing business, who will be able to advise on specific market conditions and requirements.
