Securities Lending Access to one of the largest pools of exclusively available securities in the world

Securities lending is an acknowledged strength of UBS. Our specialists are strategically situated to enable us to gather, supply and build a strong local presence in major leading markets including London, Zurich, New York, Toronto, Chicago, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Melbourne.

Our securities lending desks work together to provide 24-hour global coverage across all borders, markets and time zones. In addition to our own lending capabilities, UBS's extensive counterparty network includes UBS Financial Services' inventory as well as exclusive lending arrangements with the largest securities lenders across the world. Our proactive approach focuses on gathering supply and combines superior buy-in and recall protection with hard-to-borrow sourcing for the most difficult short-selling strategies.

As one of the world's largest wealth manager, we have access as principal or agent to over US$1.3 trillion in US and international securities. This pool is further enhanced by our ability to access non-traditional supply of 'fully paid' assets owned by our retail clients. Additionally, we can create supply synthetically, and can often provide short access in markets which are closed to security lending.

Our superior credit ratings make us a preferred borrower with major custodians, third-party agents, fund managers, and other bank portfolios.
