"Single stock futures provide significant cost advantages and flexibility for both the lenders and borrowers of stock by enabling them to exchange positions without many of the restrictions and intermediaries that exist with existing programs.

SSFs simplify the lending/borrowing process, significantly enhance the total return, and remove counter party risk.
