English term or phrase: stock loan desk
Weiß jemand in der Gemeinde, wie genau man diesen "Desk" auf Dtsch. nennt? Beispiel folgt:

"Accordingly, for example, the ‘stock loan’ desk (which arranges stock borrowing) occupies a pivotal position on the bank trading floor studied by Beunza."

Oder auch:
"For example, the stock loan desk can help the merger arbitrageurs on matters of liquidity. Merger arbitrage traders lend and borrow stock as if they could reverse the operation at any moment of time. However, if the company is small and not often traded, its stock may be difficult to borrow, and traders may find themselves unable to hedge. In this case, according to Max, senior trader at the merger arbitrage desk, “The stock loan desk helps us by telling us how difficult it is to borrow a certain stock.”"

Vielen Dank im Voraus

Den "Desk" kannst Du als "Abteilung", "Team", oder - im Kontext der räumlichen Aufteilung des Handelsraums - auch als "Tisch" bezeichnen.

Asker: Danke. Dass es um "Wertpapierleihe" geht, habe ich ja selber geschrieben, aber was ist mit dem "Desk"? Das muss ja eine Stelle sein, wo dies geschieht, wie der Beispielsatz klar zeigt.
