On top of that, the borrower gains certain rights, such as the right to sell the shares or lend them to another borrower, attending companies’ AGMs (Ordinary General Assembly), as well as receiving dividends. The securities lender is not the owner of the securities nor has the right to vote, but reserves the right to request to retrieve the securities from the borrower.
