Aviva Investors Securities Finance ("AISF") operates an agency lending programme, encompassing both securities lending and repo. We lend fixed income and equity securities, issued from most jurisdictions around the globe.
As part of Aviva Investors, the asset management arm of Aviva, we are positioned to service external clients and have an audited third party capability - but historical links to Norwich Union, CGNU and CU mean we have a strong cultural alignment to the interests of the beneficial owner.
The Aviva Investors Securities Finance team is based in London. We employ 14 people in three discrete teams - a trading team of six people headed by Mick Chadwick, an operations team of six people headed by Harold Bimpong and a client management/reporting team of two.
In addition to vanilla lending activities, AISF also manages a number of bespoke lending structures on behalf of our underlying clients. The implementation of these is possible because of the very close relationships we have with our clients, which enables us to assess, and tailor opportunities that conform to our clients' risk appetites, but which fall outside the parameters of a standard lending mandate.
