Is your firm a listed public stock company or are you a common stock investor and need access to inexpensive and secure financing? Securities-based financing is a low cost option to consider for any reason. The benefit of getting a common stock loan with us versus your stock broker is that your stock loan is non-recourse, which means that you never get a margin call when your stock decreases in value.

Hong Kong Stock Exchange


Common stock loans are securities-based loans where the terms of the loan are governed by a "Securities Lending Agreement," also know as the Control Agreement, which requires that the borrower provide the lender with collateral, in the form of common stock or other securities, of value equal to or greater than the loaned securities plus an agreed upon margin, and the common stock is pledged as collateral for the stock loan. Other securities, such as exchange traded preferred stocks and bonds, are considered on a case-by-case basis.


In most countries, you retain ownership of your common stock that is held in your own brokerage account, so you continue to receive dividends and benefit from any capital appreciation during the term of the stock loan. In countries that implement monetary restrictions on their citizens, title of the stock may need to be transfered to the lender during the term of the loan, and title is vested back to you upon loan repayment.

1) regain control of your common stock by paying the loan in full including accrued interest, if any, or

2) if the value of the pledged common stock has 'fallen below' the amount you owe (including interest), you can simply walk away from the stock loan and only forfeit your common stock. The lender has no other recourse against you, and cannot attempt to recover any of the loan amount or interest from you; your credit rating is not affected.
