This Deloitte study is very interesting in several points.
First it reminds the importance of securities lending for the smooth functioning of the financial markets.
But especially after conducting a review of existing regulations, French and European labels and academic work on securities lending and responsible investment, Deloitte confirms the consistency of securities lending transactions with responsible investment strategies when certain best practices are in place.
Indeed, securities lending and responsible investments are perfectly compatible at Natixis TradEx Solutions which, as an expert service provider, brings all its know-how to its clients to increase the performance of their portfolios.
In fact, we are proud to note that the good practices highlighted in this study have already been implemented within Natixis TradEx Solutions.
