Securities Borrowing and Lending (SBL)

Maybank Kim Eng Securities (Thailand) has been permitted by the Ministry of Finance, since 26 December 2005, to provide securities borrowing and lending services (SBL). The company will be both an intermediary and broker for all types of investors. The borrowing and lending service is an additional option for investors to manage risk and increase returns.

Eligible securities are securities listed on the SET100, the TDEX or the ENGY.
