JPMorgan Worldwide Securities Services has launched securities lending capabilities in Taiwan to help asset managers and institutional investors increase the performance of their securities portfolios with Taiwanese assets while providing them with risk-adjusted returns.
Through these capabilities, JPMorgan will be able to offer securities lending solutions to its clients with Taiwanese assets. JPMorgan’s customised securities lending solutions allow lenders to define individual programme parameters to meet their specific risk/reward requirements by using separate cash accounts. Having the ability to control the eligibility of counterparties helps clients mitigate risk more efficiently. JPMorgan also provides a robust indemnification programme against borrower default supported by the bank’s strong balance sheet.
“We are pleased to be able to offer our securities lending solutions in Taiwan, where we have seen an increasing interest for our securities lending value proposition. Our clients value JPMorgan’s conservative approach and financial strength, which are the backbone of our securities lending solutions,” said Shaun Parkes, JPMorgan’s head of Worldwide Securities Services – Asia ex-Japan.
