Stock Borrowing and Lending (SBL)

          SBL provides an investment opportunity during market downturn. Investors who expect a decrease in the stock price but do not have that stock in their portfolio, can borrow the stock from SCBS through our SBL service for short-selling in the market. When the stock price decrease to their expected level, investors then buy the stock back to return to SCBS. The “Borrower” will gain profit from the spread between the short-selling price and buying back price. 

          Investors can also enhance the return on investment by lending a stock in their portfolio to SCBS. The “Lender” will receive lending fee while remain their rights and benefits in the loaned stock, e.g. dividend and rights offering.             

          SCBS serves as an intermediary (principal) in the supply of securities borrowing and lending to investors. Eligible lending/borrowing securities are securities listed on the SET100, the TDEX or the ENGY (including ETFs) which are in the Marginable list of the company.
