We work closely with our clients to develop a program and trading structure that best satisfies each client’s specific objectives within pre-defined risk tolerances.
eSecLending’s has Trading desks in Boston and London with an expansion in functionality in our Sydney office. Our trading approach begins with an auction to assess value across a client’s lendable portfolio. Prior to the auction, eSecLending evaluates each portfolio to determine the estimated lending value, taking into consideration all client specific requirements, restrictions and guidelines. Based upon this internal analysis and the results of the auction, eSecLending will evaluate and recommend whether the portfolio is best optimized via agency exclusive execution strategies or via discretionary lending.
It is important to note that with either route to market, we do not pool our clients’ portfolios and therefore we avoid any conflict where attractive client portfolios end up subsidizing the returns of other clients, which is common with other custodial or third party agents. The goal of each trading strategy is to optimize intrinsic earnings in accordance with each client’s particular risk/reward profile.
