This has become a bit more widely known with the ongoing GME saga but, essentially, it appears that brokers can lend out your shares to short sellers.
I know this is the case with options, but this is probably more to do with the fact that you don’t actually own the shares, but…
Can our fully-owned shares be lent out to short sellers? And does the broker that FT uses do this?
I do not want my shares being lent out when these institutional short sellers are betting/working against me.
