Securities Lending

We can enhance the total yield on your portfolio by lending your securities to other financial institutions that need them to satisfy specific temporary requirements.

No Additional Cost

What makes securities lending so attractive is that it can earn you additional revenue with no risk and at no extra cost.

It's Safe

When lending securities, we require the borrower to provide a security deposit (generally Canadian Treasury bills) representing 105% of the amount requested.

A team of experts at your service

We have been lending Canadian and U.S. securities for more than 15 years, supported by National Bank's Treasury Department, which selects the borrowers, conducts the negotiations, and monitors the market value of the securities lent and given as a security deposit.

Securities lending revenues are deposited in your account monthly, as stipulated in the contract.
