At the start of 2003, The Bank of England’s Securities Lending and Repo Committee established a sub-group with representatives from The London Stock Exchange, The London Investment Banking Association, The British Banker’s Association and ISLA. The goal was to produce an up-to-date publication on Securities Lending that would be available free of charge and for distribution as widely as possible.
The resulting publication is available to read and download
