Equity First Holdings, LLC, is a leading financial institution that specializes in giving its clients, who include businesses and high net worth individuals, efficient alternative lending solutions. The firm is a pioneer in-stock based lending and is popular with customers seeking non-purpose capital. Over a period of fifteen years, the company has conducted transfers of more than $1.4 billion to customers seeking professional and personal financial assistance. In an economy where most financial institutions have increased lending rates and made it more difficult for borrowers to access loans, Equity First Holdings provides an innovative option of giving loans with stock as collateral. This financing alternative is becoming increasingly among many borrowers seeking working capital around the world today.
The firm’s global reach enables it to provide capital against shares to clients around the world. Currently, the company has offices in nine countries including Australia, Singapore, United Kingdom and Hong Kong.
Last month, the company stated that it had finalized the transaction of 1.35 million shares to ANGLE plc CEO Andrew Newland. Newland received the stock as part collateral in a financial transaction that results from EFH’s acquisition of UK Company Meridian Equity Partners in 2014. Equity First Holdings then rebranded the newly acquired firm to Equity First (London) Limited.
Announcing the completion of the transaction, EFH founder and CEO Al Christy Jr. said that EFH prides itself on a perfect record of returning collateral to its clients following the time of maturity. The firm’s transfer of the shares last month is a confirmation of Al Christy’s comments. Since 2002, Equities First Holdings has conducted over 700 transactions to clients around the world. The London subsidiary of EFH is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority of the United Kingdom.
