What are the benefits of being an ISLA Member?
Can anyone apply for ISLA membership?
How can I apply?
Please check you meet the criteria and apply via the website by filling in the form; http://www.isla.co.uk/sign-up/
What happens after I fill in the join ISLA form?
I can already access the website without being a member, what more do I get if I sign up as a member?
What you are currently seeing is the free public domain which includes some of our publications and gives you an introduction to ISLA and the work we do. To access all publications, latest industry news, regulatory updates, ISLA Working Group Minutes and documentation you must be a member.
I am a Beneficial Owner and I have registered to the free Beneficial Owner portal – do I need to be a member?
As a Beneficial Owner (BO), we do give you free access to the portal which provides tailored information to all BO’s, however, you do not have access to the full member portal and not eligible for full member benefits.
What if I need Netting Opinions?
For many years ISLA has obtained and annually updated legal opinions in a joint exercise with ICMA for numerous locations worldwide. For the securities lending business ISLA obtains opinions for the following securities lending documents; Global Master Securities Lending Agreement – GMSLA (May 2000, July 2009 and January 2010 versions); Overseas Securities Lender’s Agreement – OSLA (October 1994 and December 1995 versions) and Master Gilt Edged Stock Lending Agreement (1996 version). Members can request these as an additional service in January to our members at subscription renewal.
SLA analytics is a separate online subscription service provided by AOsphere (a wholly owned affiliate of leading international law practice Allen & Overy LLP). It simplifies your analysis of the ISLA securities lending opinions, using traffic light colour coded analysis of the key issues contained in the opinions and highlighting suggested document amendments. Please contact email@example.com for more information including pricing and to arrange a few trial or demonstration. Please note that since January 2017 to subscribe to the ISLA Netting Subscribers group you are required to be a member of ISLA.
How do I get involved with working groups?
ISLA holds various working groups which are topic specific. We encourage members to have at least one team member on each. If you would like to be added please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a member, can I make suggestions to the team at ISLA?
Yes, we look to our members for guidance on what the industry participants would find most useful. We are happy to speak to you about the work we do at ISLA at any time. Email email@example.com if you have any questions/suggestion or would just like a chat with one of us.
I have received an email to advise me that my membership has been revoked. What does this mean?
Most likely your payment for ISLA Membership for the following term has not been paid and has exceeded the deadline. We will have made your member representative aware of this and provided an opportunity to make the payment. If you were not contacted and would like to know more details, please contact us on; firstname.lastname@example.org
