Early this year, Equities First Holdings cited an increased demand for margin and stock-based loans. EFH witnessed this situation at a time when most financial institutions were tightening their lending criteria. The lending options offered by Equities First Holdings gained popularity among borrowers with a need for prompt capital and those who did not qualify for traditional credit-based loans.
With the increased lending restrictions employed by banking institutions came the rise in the demand for borrower alternatives such as loans collateralized by stocks. Most stock-based loans boast of a non-recourse characteristic, which enables borrowers to walk away from such a loan whenever he or she wants to, especially when the stock value falls. The advantage of this type of loans is that a borrower can still keeps the initial proceeds from the loan with no additional obligations to the loan lender.
For a long time, stock-based loans were highly ignored as a favorable borrowing option because of unscrupulous lenders who dumped borrowers’ collateral into the open market. Unlike those lenders, Equities First Holding has maintained a strong foundation of transparency and integrity in all its transactions.
