Why Would My Mutual Fund or ETF Lend Out The Securities in the Portfolio?

June 4, 2010 - 0 comments

Many mutual funds, ETFs and pension funds lend out securities, usually to other entities who wish to short the stock.  But this common practice raises many questions, such as:

  • How much revenue can be made from this?
  • What are the risks to investors?
  • Is all the profit given back to the shareholders?

In this week’s Science of Investing, Cameron discusses these and other questions with host Greg Hebert.
