Prime Services

Financing

Our clients’ borrowing, loan and collateral needs are met through a comprehensive financing platform, which can be customized to their trading style and strategy. Drawing upon the full strength of the firm’s capabilities, our solutions span across multiple asset classes:

Our dedicated global team works seamlessly with risk and relationship managers to provide our clients with the tools to prudently optimize their portfolios and maximize their returns.

Equities Financing

At the heart of our Equity Finance business is our ability to borrow and lend securities. Clients gain access to exclusive portfolios and a deep securities lending supply through our longstanding relationships with custodial lenders, agent banks and asset managers.

Utilizing the firm’s market-leading technology, our seasoned team of market professionals has created a comprehensive offering. Key to this success is the ability to offer physical and derivative instruments within a client’s prime brokerage account. Our clients also have access to a number of available alternative finance products, such as swaps, contracts for difference (CFDs), futures, options and specialist market access products (MAPs). These alternatives are particularly important where traditional borrowing of securities is restricted.

Securities Lending

As one of the largest borrowers of debt and equity securities globally, J.P. Morgan’s market-wide access to external supply, coupled with its extensive internal inventory, provides clients with broad global access to stable hard-to-borrow supply.  

Client coverage is provided by a well-tenured team of securities lending professionals with extensive knowledge of global markets, corporate actions and all client short-selling strategies. Our securities lending team has local presence in London, New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Sydney and Brazil.
