Global Beneficial Owners Trends and Issues

In a world of compressed yields and lackluster investment returns, securities lending has been an obvious solution for asset owners seeking alternative avenues of alpha generation at relatively low risk. Despite continued momentum in beneficial owner program participation, there remains a perception however that inherent risks within a program do not warrant the associated revenue potential. Are these perceptions justified? How has securities lending evolved since the global financial crises in helping participants manage risks appropriately? Are beneficial owners using a different lens today to assess the value proposition of securities lending? How have participants been successful in striking the right balance between risk, reward and governance?
