Stock Loans, REPO Transactions, and Block-Trading Services.

Get In Touch

Stock loans, Repo transactions, and block trades provide immediate liquidity solutions

When equity is tied up in publicly traded securities, you have few options apart from selling the securities to generate liquidity. Large single or multi-issuer shareholders generally cannot sell their securities in bulk, leaving them with few options for on-demand liquidity. 

Securities-backed financing offers a family of products and services and allows such clients immediate access to liquidity up to 70% of the value of securities, in as little as 14 days. Other features of these products include:

  • Locked-in cash value to offset market volatility
  • No restrictions on use of cash proceeds
  • Loans and transactions are not dependent on personal credit and require no personal guarantees
  • Securities can be non-marginable and can include stock from recent IPOs and stock that routinely trades for less than US$5.00 per share.
  • Borrowers can elect to not repay the principal and simply walk away from the loan by forfeiting the collateral.
