What Are the Stock Borrowing Amounts?

We can provide securities financing from $500,000 to $50,000,000 USD. We do require the stocks being refinanced to have a minimum turnover but we do work with several securities financing houses that offer the lowest stock turnover in the business.

Terms of providing you with liquidity and funding are based on evaluation of the risk and future performance associated with the securities involved in the transaction. The term of the transaction is typically three years, with Interest payments or Maintenance Fees on quarterly or semi-annual bases. Our stock financing and provision of liquidity are interest only, or accompanied by modest Maintenance Fees, and additionally, are non-recourse. The recipient of funding has the option of simply walking away at any time with no further liability and no personal or corporate guarantees.

In the event of a default, our stocks and securities lenders do not report to any credit bureaus or governmental agencies, nor do we file any public notice. There is no adverse consequence to the client’s credit.

Due to the unique tax and legal issues involved with transactions involving publicly traded stock, anyone considering alternative financing should consult both tax and legal counsel.

Stock Funding Process

  • We determine the viability of the transaction, and calculates a maximum transaction amount, relative to the value of the stock and an interest rate, or Maintenance Fee, based on an assessment of both short and long term risks.
  • We issue a term sheet to client to review.
  • Terms are negotiated and finalized.
  • We send contract documents to client for review.
  • Final contract is negotiated and signed.
  • Both parties coordinate a delivery date with their respective brokerage.
  • Transaction is funded normally 3 to 7 days.
  • Stock transaction can be funded with 1 day in extreme situations.

What Is A Non-Recourse Stock Loan?

A non-recourse stock loan is a type of loan that uses shares in a publicly-traded company to secure the loan. It is an excellent way for individuals and business owners to tap into the value of their stock easily and quickly without having to wait too long for the money.

Stock loans can be a critical financing source for entrepreneurs. A stock loan is a resource they can quickly access to fund business operations.

The loan amount is determined by a loan to value (LTV) ratio which means the loan amount may be equal to 50% of the value of the shares needed to secure the loan.

In addition to other criteria, the maximum loan amount available to a borrower depends on:

  • Market conditions
  • Historical stock price and volume performance
  • Total number of shared owned
  • Market sector

Why Would Someone Want A Stock Loan?

The ability to convert a majority of the current market value of securities into cash without selling them outright is an attractive option for many shareholders. With that value unlocked from their shares, individuals and business owners can get the liquidity they need with ease and without visiting the bank.
