      Securities Finance Virtual Series

      • We are delighted to announce IMN's ‘Securities Finance Virtual Series’ which comprises monthly live virtual panels featuring a faculty of experts as they discuss a range of hot topics within the securities finance market.  The content for each of these virtual panels is largely driven by our network of beneficial owners and will include discussions on lending program structure, regulatory issues, ESG, technology, and lending trends in North America and Europe. While the global health crisis has put our physical events on hold, we are happy to continue our commitment to engage in lively debate, enable the exchange of critical market intelligence and foster relationships within the global financial community.  To this end, IMN's virtual series will feature dedicated networking, allowing all attendees to connect in the days leading up to, during and after each virtual panel. Please navigate the tabs on this page to see more details on each of the virtual panels we will be hosting over the coming months, including timing, topics and current speakers.  We hope you will join us for some or all of the series!
