J.P. Morgan became the first international lender in the Malaysian market to offer a securities lending product.
It would now be able to offer securities lending solutions to major prime brokers and clients with Malaysian assets, with asset managers and institutional investors benefiting from improved risk-adjusted returns on their securities portfolios containing Malaysian assets.
"As lenders demand greater transparency and flexibility across their securities lending programme, J.P.
