A catch-all phrase to catch stock lending and repurchase transactions by which a security holder raises money against an asset without giving up her price risk to that asset. Traditionally this means stock lending )(for equities) and repo (for debt and bonds), though margin lending, prime brokerage and synthetic prime brokerage using equity derivatives have the same basic effect.
