Generally, for securities to qualify as collateral, they must be publicly and actively traded stocks, bonds, mutual funds or Treasury notes without restrictions. The loan process involves completing a form listing the name, symbol and shares to be pledged. Quote requests often are online, which can make it easy for brokers to access information.
A completed form and a recent monthly statement of the security or securities are typically sent to the lender, which usually responds within 24 hours. Terms are offered, and upon agreement, the loan documents are prepared and the securities are soon transferred to a holding company.
A final value is based on an average of the closing price of the collateral for three consecutive market days. The borrower then transfers ownership of the securities to the lender. The borrower retains all beneficial interests in the securities, including all dividends. The number of shares of collateral initially pledged is returned to the borrower when the loan terms are settled.
Lock-out periods are common, and brokers should familiarize themselves with all loan restrictions. Securities-based lending can help brokers erase the frustrations many borrowers face trying to find adequate lending programs in a market distinguished by constrained access to capital. The lack of underwriting hoops and approval delays — along with unrestricted use of funds — represents another upside.
