THE WINDOW IS CLOSING!
Market complexity is growing, regulatory requirements are increasing and clients are getting more demanding and sophisticated. Most firms are resource-constrained, spread out across the world and the number of people with deep experience seem to be declining, are hard to reach and most people focus on getting through the day and have no excess capacity.
"PAC content serves as an excellent source of industry knowledge and educational resources for those involved in the securities lending market.”

The pool of publicly available information is expanding, but not of much value to people already in the market who typically have an understanding beyond the average person searching the internet.
Virtual events have increased and that’s been great, but many of them are moving behind paywalls and in any case, it's often difficult to really learn anything in depth. The topics are chosen by sponsors and hosts rather than what the audience needs and speakers are careful not to publicly reveal any valuable information. So how can you get better?

WHO IS IT FOR?
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM PAC
PAC Membership is for people across the securities finance ecosystem – borrowers, lenders, intermediaries, fintech firms, professional services and regulators. In other words, anyone with a need to learn, know and understand the business. Whether they are in leadership positions, aspire to be so, or want to be recognised as a competent knowledgeable professional, the PAC is part of the formula for success.
Mastery and expertise is a journey, not a destination. Think of professional athletes – even when they are at the top of their game, they still practice, they still have coaches, and they still rely on others to help them achieve success. New trends, markets, technology, regulations, issues, or competitive disruptors all drive a need to seek out new knowledge and information.
Securities finance is an integral part of the modern capital markets and the people are spread across the globe, making it more challenging to connect with others. The PAC provides a network of like-minded professionals without artificial barriers.
Whether you are new to the business or a seasoned veteran, there is something in the PAC for you.
