Global PSSL – ISLA Disclaimer (Archive)

Global PSSL

The Global Principles for Sustainable Securities Lending (Global PPSL) is the fundamental global mechanism for aligning securities lending with sustainable finance. This voluntary initiative has been developed through years of research based engagement between Dr Radek Stech, representing the SFLS Network at Exeter Law School, prominent beneficial owners and several agent lenders and other stakeholders committed to positive change.

In order to preserve its impartiality, the Global PSSL framework is based within its own independent community interest company, led by Dr Stech.


The ISLA Council for Sustainable Finance is part of the International Securities Lending Association (ISLA). It was launched in January 2020 and is Chaired by Dr Stech. ISLA supports and endorses the Global PSSL initiative and has collaborated with Global PSSL to create a testing ground to enable the principles to grow and mature and eventually be applied for the benefit of ISLA’s members and securities lending stakeholders in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region.

Both Global PSSL and ICSF are independent and separate autonomous bodies, that seek to collaborate to drive forward a sustainable agenda in securities finance.
