Content and comparisons

2010 GMSLA version concerns corporate actions on Loaned Securities and Collateral, whereas the 2018 Pledge GMSLA only talks about Loaned Securities for the very good reason that a pledgor does not transfer title to Collateral in the first place, so can still participate in corporate events on Collateral it has posted, by itself.
