What Fees Can You Expect From Stock Loans?
Stock loans are an underused form of raising business capital. The capital is raised by exchanging non-marginal stocks for a non-recourse loan. This creates a great opportunity for businesses shuddered by banks and institutions.
Do you hold non-marginal stocks and need an injection of capital? Want to understand how the process works and the fees you can expect?
You’ll include this form of fundraising on your list of potentials by the end of this article. Let’s check it out.
Stock Loans: How It Works
A stock loan falls under the securities lending umbrella.
Traditionally, stocks are lent to a borrower for a small fee. The investor uses stocks to position trades for income earning activities like shorting. The stocks exchanged with the investor are publicly traded or securities.
Stock loans follow this parallel with one major difference: a business provides a loan for the non-marginal stocks.
Here’s how it differs:
- The stock acts as the loan collateral
- The loan forgoes a credit check and reporting
- The exchange is kept private and confidential
A business using this fundraising receives a loan based on a loan to value ration. This accounts the non-marginal stock and securities market value and performance.
Stock Loans: Fee Structures
Securities lending follow similar fee structures. A traditional agreement will use interest and tenure to reach an agreement. The borrower pays a fee for use of the stocks. Borrowers also pay equal amounts earned by dividends.
The stock loans offered through StockLoanSolutions take a different approach.
Our process and fees are as follows:
- Our in-house team of underwriters determines the LTV of your holdings
- We present a quote ranging from $50k-$5mil
- You decide to meet an agreement
- A repayment schedule of 12, 24, or 36 months are chosen
- You pay interest payments quarterly until the loan is repaid
- Stocks transfer back to you upon repayment
This process does not have up-front fees and typically closed and funded within 48 hours. Our stock loans fees are determined by the current prime rate.
The current prime rate (02/18/08) is: 4.50%
Interest is paid alongside the principle and compounds monthly.
Variable Factors for Fees
Our fee, using the current prime rate, makes stock loan an elegant solution for fundraising. Though, every client can expect different fee structures based on several factors.
These factors include:
- Business size
- Liquidity of stock
- Sales volume
Once the loan agreement is established the repayment fees and rates do not change. Those unable to repay their stock loan in the determined time may choose to rework the loan terms. Or, offer their stock as repayment as they were first established as collateral.
