Member Login

ISLA has two membership categories: full members and associate members. Full members must be engaged as principal or agent in the lending or borrowing of securities. Associate members must be involved in the provision of commercial services to full members in support of their securities lending or borrowing activities.

The benefits of membership include:

  • Access to the ISLA website, including the restricted members’ pages. The website provides information about regulatory, legal and tax developments affecting securities lending. It also details ISLA’s activities.
  • The opportunity to become involved in and influence ISLA’s work.
  • Discounted rates at ISLA events.

Full members are able to vote in ISLA elections, participate in sub-groups and nominate their member representative for the ISLA Board. Associate members have access to the full ISLA membership and are listed on a directory of service providers on the ISLA website.
