eSecLending and ISS join forces to help institutional investors optimise securities lending

RELATED TOPICS​

eSecLending, a leading global securities lending agent, has launched a new service called ProxyValue, designed to help institutional investors maximise income generated from the lending of securities while ensuring proxy voting fiduciary duties are met.

When participating in securities lending, institutional investors often find it challenging to effectively manage the dual objectives of revenue generation and corporate governance responsibility. ProxyValue applies securities lending performance information to proxy voting management, bringing clarity, discipline and simplicity to the process.

Peter Bassler, Managing Director for eSecLending, says: "ProxyValue continues our commitment to leadership and innovation in the industry. We are excited to work with ISS to deliver a creative solution that will help institutional investors make well informed corporate governance decisions. By providing the tools to evaluate the revenue considerations of recalling shares, ProxyValue will bridge the gap between institutional investors’ corporate governance and securities lending strategies."

Matthew Newman, Vice President for ISS, says: "Our clients are continuously seeking ways to efficiently and effectively execute on their proxy voting responsibilities while also maximising incremental revenue opportunities. ISS is pleased to partner with eSecLending in their goal to help institutions evaluate the economic and fiduciary impact of recalling shares."
