A New Trend of Margin and Stock-based Loans is Emerging

With banks and other lenders tightening their belts on lending criteria, Global Lender Equities First Holdings is seeing a growing trend in margin a stock-based loans. Getting a large loan for capitol or for personal reasons is not as easy as it once was due to uneasy global and national economic climates. For those who need to raise capitol quickly or do not qualify for a conventional loan based on credit, equities lending is becoming a popular alternative.

The appeal of stock-based loans
While traditional options for borrowing money still remain for many individuals seeking capitol and large loans, many banks have made it more difficult to qualify for a loan by tightening qualifications and increasing interest rates. Loans that are collateralized by stocks is a unique and attractive alternative for borrowers to receive the capitol they need. With a higher loan-to-value ratio than margin loans, stock-based loans are attractive to borrowers because they provide certainty throughout the life of the transaction and offer a fixed interest rate. Also, a stock-based loan offers a hedge that can lower the borrower’s investment risk in downside market.

Offering fresh, innovative, and alternative lending options is what Equities First Holdings is all about.

Helping The Kids With Homework Over Securus

I have done some things that I am not proud of in my past, and I just got out of jail for it. I know that it was not the best choice, but I was glad that Securus helped me out to do the homework with the kids over video. The video was really nice because I sat down for homework with my daughter every night. I know that this sounds kind of fanciful, but it really worked for our family.

I actually did not have a homework routine with my daughter before I went to jail, but I had one when it got set up on Securus. The video looked really good, and I actually felt like I was sitting at the table with my daughter to help her with some simple math problems. We talked for a few minutes, and then she would go to bed every night. We did this pretty regularly until I got out, and now we do this every night.

I think that it was very smart of Securus to show that they can bring people together for a lot of different life events. They do have very secure calls, but I was not thinking about that at the time. I was thinking about how I would be able to talk to my daughter the next night.

Homework was the big thing that we did every night, but I got a lot of life out of the video calls we made. All it took with a cell phone and the app.
