With its headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana, Equities First Holdings LLC was founded in 2002. Since then, the company has been offering alternative financing solutions to their clients. It supplies capital against the publicly traded shares to enable their clients to meet both personal as well as professional goals. To-date, EFH has done over 650 transactions, offering customers loans at low-interest rates.

EFH is an international company. It has offices in nine countries including London, Hong Kong, Indianapolis, Singapore, Sydney, Bangkok, and Perth.

Their loans are based on their evaluation of risks as well as the future performance of bonds, stocks, and treasuries on the market.

Equities First Holdings record a growing trend among stock-based loan borrowers

Equities First Holdings- a global leader and lender in alternative financing solutions has witnessed increased traction in stock-based and margin loans in an economic environment where lending criteria has been made tighter in banks and other institutions. Equities First Holdings is quickly gaining popularity as a possible alternative for borrowers who need quick capital or those who do not meet the qualifications for a more conventional credit-based loan.

While there are many options for these individuals, lately, many banks have tightened their loan qualifications, increased interest rates and cut their lending options.

Al Christy, Jr, the CEO and founder of EFH, thinks that loans collateralized by stocks are innovative borrowing alternatives for people seeking working capital.

Ideally, the loan-to-value ratio of stock-based loans is higher compared to that of the margin loans. Stock-based loans also have a fixed interest rate, and this provides the lender with certainty throughout the lifespan of the transaction.

Unlike conventional loans which are bound to be affected by fluctuations in the market, stock-based loans provide a buffer. This is because borrowers lower their risks of the investment in a disadvantaged market.

With more stock-based loans, there is a way out and borrowers can walk away from a loan at any time, even if the value of stocks depreciates. The borrower is allowed to keep the initial proceeds of the loan with no further responsibility to the lender.

 

The City of Dallas is making changes for the better in specific areas of the city. Lower Income Families are prevalent in Southern Dallas and with a depressed economy, people just cant afford to purchase a homes. Luckily, Dallas is about to reinvent itself and introduce an all new way that gives families a chance to own a home. The name of the program is “The Affordable Housing Loan Program.” This program consists of three organizations that are working together to make owning a home more affordable.Habitat For Humanity, Dallas Neighborhood Homes, and NexBank are working hand to hand to make this a reality.

The two non-profit organizations are connecting lenders with buyers, which would otherwise be unsuccessful at this point in time. Owning a home comes with it’s day to day challenges and these organizations are providing counseling and support throughout the term. The goal is to provide over 100 loans each year for the next five years. Since these loans are for low income individuals, funding is the main barrier and that’s where NexBank enters the equation. NetBank is a successful regional bank in the Greater Dallas Area. This institution is willing to provide up to $50 Million in loan support. The proceeds will go to people with limited access to mortgages and the non-profit organizations will handle the disbursements. It’s a win, win situation on both sides especially from NexBank.

Now families in certain Dallas zip codes will be proud, new homeowners. On top of that, Nexbank will be offering an additional $2,000 for closing costs. This great program is improving the quality of life and the entire blueprint should be used a s a model throughout the country.

There has never been a moment when Jay-Z doubted the rise of Tidal. Unfortunately, there were many other people that did doubt what Tidal could do. He had to be street smart in order to connect the dots to the making money and growing his customers base. He could not afford to let other businesses that did music streaming blur his vision. That is why he made the decision to bring in Dez Perez. She has been a strong influence, and she has helped him run the company in a way that he may have never guessed he could run it.

 

Perez has become the creative force that has allowed Tidal to keep going when people thought that Jay-Z could not put this off. Perez has a keen business sense. She knows about business deals, and she really has been able to keep a lot of people interested in what Tidal is doing next. That is the thing that makes people pay attention to this business. They are scared not to be plugged into what is happening with this streaming music service because they think that they are going to miss something. Customers are concerned that a new Beyonce or Kanye West single may surface and they might miss out. This is the type of spontaneous environment that Desiree Perez created has helped.

 

This has been a hard road because there are no many people that have already signed up for streaming service like Pandora or Spotify. The Pandora site has been around for a long time. There are also some people that are still interested in radio apps. These are people that may be interested in hearing different radio personalities in different cities. There are a lot of ways for people to hear music so Tidal was really fighting an uphill battle from the start.

 

Dez Perez would be the connection to a world where deals were negotiated with great payouts upfront. She was able to help Jay-Z see that it made sense to get artists that were connected with Tidal on big tours. This would inspire fans to take interest in what these performers were doing. They would be drawn to the new music. There was also a need to provide exclusive content. That is why there are deluxe albums featured on the Tidal site with tracks that are not available for streaming elsewhere.

We will probably never know exactly what Kyle Bass was thinking, but it does seem as though he fell into a snare that he thought was going to be a gold mine. The oil industry took a downturn over the last year that led to the big drop in prices, the result that benefited consumers but left some investors and hedge fund firms facing losses. Kyle Bass was one of those hedge fund managers who had made investments in oil, predicting that the energy sector was going to have a big bounce back in prices, just as the housing market took a tumble in 2008. He had taken words from oil magnate T. Boone Pickens who had said that “oil supply will not overtake the domestic storage capacity.” Pickens denies that what he said was meant as actual investment advice.

 

The blame for that debacle can mostly be put on Bass himself, whose hedge fund firm Hayman Capital was a success in its early years. Kyle Bass had been in the financial industry with Prudential Securities, Bear Stearns and Legg Mason, at all of which he had become proficient at strategically placing client investments. When he founded Hayman Capital, he believed that a housing crisis was imminent due to the studies he had conducted on subprime mortgages, and the spending habits of Americans. And sure enough he was right, making investments in credit default swaps and earning fame as a man with foresight. But in the years since, his shrewd decision-making hasn’t been so wise.

 

Kyle Bass made several egregious decisions recently, one of which was choosing his friends wrong. One friend in particular he got wrong was Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, known as a despotic president in Argentina, and her bad economic choices have driven the country into debt. Americans holding Argentina’s debt wanted full payment of amounts due to them, and Bass criticized them as “holding a poor country hostage.” Bass also defended GM when their leaders were put on trial for failing to address safety features responsible for killing passengers in several accidents. He did so because of a large amount of investments he had with the company. Finally, Bass got in trouble with the US Patent Trial and Appeals Board for abusing the patent review system when his organization, the CFAD kept challenging patents, and then short selling pharmaceutical stocks.
