Frequently Asked Questions

Will I know who the borrower is, and do they know who I am?


As a new lender, you will see a list of potential borrowers and you can select those you want to lend to. Borrowers only see the securities which are available for them to borrow, so if you haven’t approved them as a borrower, they will never see your securities as available to borrow. Once approved, your securities will be displayed in our availability list which is aggregated and anonymous. When a borrower requests to borrow one of your securities, the system will either auto-approve the loan or request your manual approval, depending on your preferences.  At this point, you will receive a message containing details of the loan and the borrower.
