Fully Paid Lending is a strategy investors choose to try to generate additional income on their portfolios by loaning securities through an intermediary. The investor (lender) temporarily loans securities to a financial institution (borrower), such as a broker-dealer, hedge fund or bank. Each day that your stock is on loan, revenue can be earned through interest earned on the collateral value for the loan based on market rates.
