In the past few years, Equities First Holdings has experienced traction in its stock-based and margin loans as investors seek for attractive liquidity investment. As such, borrowers can have access to prompt capital without conforming to the stringent requirements by credit-based conventional loans. According to Al Christy, Jr., owner and Chief Operating Officer of Equity First Holdings, stock-based loans suits investors in need of operating capital. While the market fluctuates, stock-based loans lessen the risk of the increase in interest rates and depreciation of the loan proceeds.
The stock-based loans are preferred over margin loans because they have fixed interest rates. The rates range between 3% and 5% while margin loans varies. Moreover, for stock-based loans, borrowers retain loan proceeds even in the event of stock depreciation. Conversely, in the case of a margin call borrower’s loan proceeds depreciate without notice. Unlike stock-based loans, borrowers access margin loans without pre-qualifications.
