Securities borrowing and lending is a very competitive business. While individual firms involved in the business may have their own unique marketing and business development strategies in Asia, the member firms believe that PASLA, as a collective group of major firms in the industry, provides an important benefit to Asian securities regulators, stock exchanges, and monetary authorities by providing an "industry consensus" on issues that affect the development of the securities lending business.
