First, we discuss procedures and terms for Non Recourse Stock Loans in Non-US Markets*.

The biggest difference with foreign markets is that transfer of title takes place, compared to US markets where there can be no transfer of title.

*This includes USA dually listed stocks

Securities Backed Loans or Non Recourse Stock Loans are recognized around the world as an alternative source of working capital for companies and individuals. Typical broker margin accounts offer 50% loan-to-value compared to Securities Backed Loans that offer of up to 85% loan-to-value. The interest rate is also substantially lower than traditional margin accounts.

The entire process can take as little as a week to finalize. The terms are always negotiable, flexible and tailor-made to suit the borrower. There are no maximum loan amounts.

With a Securities Backed Loan for a stock listed in a Foreign Exchange, title passes from the borrower to the lender when the loan is issued, and then back to the borrower when the loan is repaid. This process is accomplished electronically by DVP (Delivery vs Payment).

DVP assures the simultaneous delivery of funds and title to the borrower and lender.

Securities backed lending is

the sensible alternative.

Non recourse stock loans are used by global financial services firms, leading asset management companies, investment banking houses, prime brokers, and high-net-worth individuals to retire high-interest debt, refinance margin accounts, for acquisitions and mergers, leveraged buyouts, and bridge loans.

NPG’s strategic relationships with lending institutions offer proven and tested access to funding. The “non recourse” feature means the lender’s only recourse is the collateral being pledged. That means should the borrower decide to walk away from the loan the lender has no other recourse such as take legal action or blotch the borrower’s credit history.

Title always transfers to the Lender at closing, to ensure the Lender has complete control of the stock in case the borrower defaults. Therefore, escrows and other safekeeping strategies cannot be employed with a non recourse stock loan in foreign stocks.

Working capital for any purpose

These loans are not available for BG’s, MTN’s, SBLC’s or LTN’s.
