What is securities lending?
Sometimes referred to as fully paid securities lending, securities lending is the practice of lending securities from one party to another. The recipient can then sell those securities to take a short position in the market. Made popular in the early 1980s, security lending service providers serve as facilitators of security lending transactions, handling the process for the lender.

What is an example of securities lending?
An example of securities lending, or sec lending, would be where an asset manager has a long-term position in a particular security. That asset manager would then engage a sec lending services provider to make their inventory available to potential borrowers. The borrower would then take a short position in the market, selling the borrowed security and providing the sale proceeds as collateral for the loan. Then once the borrower no longer needs the security, they can initiate the process via the security lending service provider.
