“We know our clients are busy people, every day they are faced with complex tasks. The last thing they need are complicated, bit-part solutions. We aim to make life easier for our clients, yet at the same time provide cutting-edge technology that keeps them ahead. It’s about raising the bar and always being one step ahead. It’s about making our innovation, your advantage. ”

Brian P. Lamb, CEO



EquiLend's original business plan in 2001 called for providing statistically meaningful industry benchmarks and market data. At that time, no such offering was prevalent in the industry. Since then, the data services market has proven that a demand exists for these products and services.

Ten years later, EquiLend initiated the build for a securities finance market data business. By the end of 2011, a raw data feed and graphical user interface were complete. These two products were introduced to an initial test group from our client base and produced a positive response.

DataLend has continued to fine-tune its service offering based on user feedback, client needs and market demand, and since going live in January 2013 has brought on more than 30 clients.


As part of our implementation of the industry established "give to get" methodology, DataLend provides a secure site in which to transfer data.

DataLend provides inbound and outbound file specifications for client data. It then accepts client data on a daily basis and provides a set of anonymous, aggregated metrics by security. This data is available on the next business day.

During the Beta phase, our global data was deemed to have broad market coverage and overall calculations were in line with our client's own data.
