Quadriserv is a provider of products and services to the securities lending industry. Through its wholly owned subsidiary, Automated Equity Finance Markets, Inc., Quadriserv has developed and operates the AQS and AQS Direct securities lending platforms, offering automated securities lending trading in over 5,000 underlying equity, ETF and ADR products.
Founded in 2001, Quadriserv and its AQS subsidiary were created by a group of prime brokerage veterans to deliver transformational market structure changes to the securities lending industry, including beneficial owners, custodial banks, agent lenders, broker dealers and hedge funds.
On Sept. 8, 2011, Quadriserv announced the launch of AQS Direct a broker-to-broker securities lending platform, offering improved opportunities for equity financing.
On Oct. 6, 2010, Quadriserv announced the integration of their AQS platform with SunGard's Loanet Smart Loan, providing SunGard customers control over order management and inventory functions as well as helping to avoid dual usage of securities available for lending. AQS orders can also be initiated and maintained from within Smart Loan.
