‘Through droughts and rains’ – What’s the current forecast for securities lending in Australia?
Australia’s established and fluid securities lending market tends to take a back seat versus its peers in Asia that exhibit superior returns though potentially with greater risk. The panel will focus on what has changed in Australia since PASLA last hit these shores 10 years ago and where our panel expects the industry to head in the next 5 years.
