The Specific Lender trading permission enables securities lending transactions for loans versus non-cash collateral. The prerequisite is a collateral pledge model with a Triparty Collateral Agent. The restricted trading possibilities enables simplified admission requirements e.g. no requirements to pay a clearing fund contribution or margins. It cannot be combined with other Clearing Licenses (e.g. GC Pooling). However, an application as Specific Lender is possible in connection with a Select Invest trading permission.
