ESG & Securities Lending: Finding Common Ground

ESG is likely to be the single biggest ‘agent for change’ in the way we think about how securities lending programmes work. In a post COVID-19 world, it is already clear that investors are demanding different things from their investment portfolios with a greater emphasis being placed on the wider green agenda. Our markets have to both recognise this change and respond to these changes. This session will debate the key issues that will allow an investor to fully comply with their ESG objectives whilst maintaining an effective lending programme. In particular, the operational questions that need to be addressed around areas such as voting, corporate actions and the management of collateral.
