Security lending and borrowing mechanism

The Security Lending and Borrowing Mechanism (SLBM) is a system where a trader borrows equity shares that they do not already own, lends shares that they own, or lends shares that they own but with no intention to sell them.

  • Individuals can borrow stocks and short-sell equities that they do not own in the market.
  • It is a hedging tool that is frequently used to balance potential hazards.
  • Possibility of boosting liquidity for traders.
  • Allows investors to earn fees on long-term held equities if they use them as collateral.

  • This tool can be used by sophisticated and experienced traders to boost liquidity.
  • Hedgers who want to reduce their possible risks and losses.
  • Retail investors can use this service to lend their shares and earn fees.

  • Tenure of lending and borrowing is available for up to a period of 1 to 12 months.
  • Mainly securities traded in the F&O segment are eligible for lending and borrowing.
  • Investors can generate additional income from the idle shares in their portfolio.
  • Exchange provides a list of securities for SLB trading every month.
  • The specified reverse leg settlement date is the first Thursday of the corresponding month. Thus, each reverse leg settlement date is assigned a specific series number.
  • All corporate action benefits go to the lender, for those who lend the shares in the SLBM platform.
