Prime Brokerage

Taylor Louis LLP has global expertise with prime brokerage relationships and the tools utilized by prime brokers and their third party agents and custodians. An in-depth understanding of securing, protecting and cross-collateralizing prime brokerage accounts is vital in this post-Lehman environment. The prime brokerage tools are repurchase agreements, give-up agreements, securities lending agreements, cross-netting and portfolio margining structures, guaranteed investment contracts (GICs), structured notes, custody agreements and other transactions relevant to the prime brokerage relationship. We also advise and secure "Customer" rights in connection with the Securities Investor Protection Corporation ("SIPC").
