Equities First Holdings: Showing Success in Difficult Financial Times

Nobody can deny the country is having some financial difficulties. And nowhere is that more evident in the financial world. Stocks are fluctuating wildly. Banks are tightening their lending leash. All sorts of constraints are being put in place. But even with all that going on, one company still continues to succeed. That company is called Equities First Holdings.

Equities First Holdings is global leader in alternative shareholder financing solutions. What this means is that they specialize in loans that use stocks as collateral. Even in these difficult financial times, this lets Equities First do very well. So well, in fact, that they recently completed a major loan transaction. This transaction saw 1.35 million shares of stock with ANGLE plc. The deal was completed when the hefty collateral was returned to ANGLE plc, showing how Equities First is able to do its job like no other lending and trading company can.

The deal also shows how Equities First Holdings is a global trader, as ANGLE plc is a company based in the United Kingdom. It was the first deal Equities First started after they gained an office in the UK by acquiring Meridian Equity Partners Limited, expanding its operation even more than it already was. And the company is showing no signs of stopping, with offices in the US, UK, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Australia, and even Thailand.

The successful completion of this transaction is par for the course for Equities First. The return of collateral that shows a completed transaction is a regular occurrence for the company, even if most deals can take two or three years to complete. With such a regular completion rate, it is no wonder that Equities First Holdings is doing so well, even in a time when banks and other lending agencies are tightening the purse strings.
