The annual selection process and ceremony by Global Investor/ISF magazine – a leading international publication on asset management and investor services – are an opportunity for securities lenders and borrowers alike to evaluate their peers’ contributions to the sector over the past twelve months, as well as their securities lending expertise.

- the Highly Commended Global 2016 award in the Lender Group 2 category
- the Highly Commended EMEA 2016 award in the Lender Group 2 category
- the Highly Commended Asia-Pacific 2016 award in the Lender Group 2 category
Active engagement in market debates to protect our clients’ interests
On 23 September, team sales trader Manuel Leveque also took part in a panel discussion in London at the 21st Annual Beneficial Owners’ Securities Lending Conference on the following topic: Remaining Competitive: Best Practices for Effective Benchmarking & Performance Tracking Across a Lending Programme Today.
At the event, he discussed our clients’ requirements and the various tools at their disposal, as well as the performance of service providers like CACEIS in the realm of securities lending.
Dan Copin, Head of Securities Lending at CACEIS, had this to say: “These awards and CACEIS’s role in the market debates is proof both of how this activity has developed at CACEIS, and of our ability to provide our clients with close and constant guidance in a radically changing market”.
