Motilal Oswal Report

Securities Lending and Borrowing (SLB) is a mechanism through which investors can borrow or lend shares to other market participants for a stipulated duration, at a certain fee.

This mechanism provides liquidity to the equity market and thereby increases the market efficiency in India.

The platform provides a viable alternative to the derivatives market for purposes of hedging.

Borrowers in SLB are usually short-sellers i.e. traders who want to sell shares that they don't own.

Lenders on the other hand are those investors who have bought shares for long-term purposes and such shares are lying idle in their demat accounts.
