Equities First Holdings: The Global Leader In Securities-Based Lending

Equities First Holdings, LLC has shown a continued commitment to customers by relocating their Melbourne offices to a new, more accessible location in the heart of Melbourne. According to Mitchell Hopwood, the Managing Director for Equities First Holdings (Australia) Pty Ltd, the US-based business has continued to experience growth in the Australian market, and relocating the Melbourne office provides space not only for current clients and staff, but also allows the firm room to grow in the future.

Equities First Holdings (EFH) is a private equity company that specializes in lending non-purpose, stock-based capital for both businesses and high net-worth individuals. Lending is based on an assessment of the risk and potential future performance of securities. Since their inception in 2002, EFH has completed over 700 transactions totaling well over $1 billion.

One of the advantages of security-based lending is that most loans are non-recourse, providing a solid option for qualified investors looking for capital to help achieve personal or business-related goals. Loans are secured with shares traded on public exchanges around the world. The loans are also unrestricted, so the capital can be used for any purposes the investor deems fit, allowing for far greater flexibility than many other loan options. Due to the nature of this type of lending, clients are able to run each operation on a deal-by-deal basis. Loans are straightforward and can be tailored to meet the unique and varied needs of both individuals and businesses. By leveraging their securities and shares, clients can receive funds at a much lower cost than more traditional loans, making capital borrowed from Equities First Holdings an appealing option for both the savvy individual and businessman.
