What is Securities Lending?

Securities Lending is a well-established and tightly regulated practice involving the short-term transfer (loan) of securities. The objective is to enhance the ETF’s overall performance.

When a security is loaned, the borrower (who has been approved by Invesco and the Lending Agent) provides collateral and pays an agreed fee for the duration of the loan. Collateral is an asset that a lender accepts as security for a loan. If the borrower defaults on the loan payments, the lender can seize the collateral and resell it to recoup its losses.


How much revenue goes to the ETF?

The ETF will receive 90% of the revenue arising from securities lending, with the remaining 10% deducted by the Lending Agent, Bank of New York Mellon (BNY Mellon), for its fees and to cover direct and indirect operational costs. Invesco will not receive any revenue from the programme.

Risks to consider
Securities lending involves certain risks that an investor should consider, including:

  • The risk of the borrower defaulting on its obligation to return the securities at the end of the loan period, and
  • The risk of the ETF being unable to sell the collateral provided to it if the borrower defaults.

To mitigate these risks, the ETF benefits from a “borrower default indemnity” provided by the Lending Agent, BNY Mellon. The indemnity allows for full replacement of the securities loaned if the collateral does not cover the value of the securities in the event of a borrower default.

Key risks

Capital is not guaranteed: The value of investments, and income from them, can go down as well as up and you may not get back the full amount you invested.

Index tracking: The Fund will not replicate the performance of its Reference Index perfectly, this is because the Fund will incur drags on performance such as expenses and transactions costs, which the Reference Index is not subject to. If the Fund is unable to hold the securities in the exact proportion required this will affect its ability to track the Reference Index.

Liquidity on secondary market risk: Lower liquidity means there are insufficient buyers or sellers to allow the Fund to sell or buy investments readily. On-exchange liquidity may be limited due to Reference Index suspension, a decision by one of the relevant stock exchanges, a breach by the market maker or respective stock exchange requirements and guidelines.

Value of securities: The value of securities can be affected by daily stock market movements. Other influential factors include political, economic news, company earnings and significant corporate events.
