Recent Client Testimonial:

“This was a great route to keep my investments earning dividends and gains while leveraging those funds for a low cost loan. I am glad I discovered this tool. Also, Don Johnson (ABN Business Development Director) helped me compare the fixed versus variable costs. This is truly a win-win for any small business start-up. Great for 2nd career entrepreneurs looking to get their ideas or businesses off the ground!”

  • Better credit lines means higher loan-o-value – up (advances) to up to 95% depending on the composition of your securities portfolio. More loan-to-value means more cash available for your needs.
  • No credit inquiry required to receive a pre-approved loan or credit line offer. Our lenders look at your asset value first. They’ll evaluate your stocks, mutual funds, REITs, ETFs for risk factors, then make an offer. 
  • 100% U. S.-based, FINRA-certified advisors from top U. S. institutions make up our stock-secured credit line  lending network. 
  • Wholesale, competitive rates usually well below what brokerages typically offer on a margin loan. 
  • Zero cost to confidentially apply. You pay A. B. Nicholas only if we deliver as promised, which means AFTER you’ve received your funds. There are no up-front fees in advance. 
  • Many additional benefits and features, which each lender has pledged to honor, including ability to defer payments, use a Trust of an established company as the signatory, and fixed rate options. 
  • Designed for those with Umbrella Partnership Real Estate Investment Trust (UPREIT) securities that cannot be sold without losing tax-deferred status and paying large cap gains taxes. 
  • Get liquidity from UPREITs and REITS without having to convert or sell beforehand — normally impossible. 
  • Same top-tier, licensed U. S. based network of major U. S. brokerage partners. 
  • Allows real estate investors to be paid in UPREIT stock without having to convert those tax-deferred UPREITs into a standard fully taxable marginable REIT. (Consult with your CPA for specifics). 
  • Maintain your UPREIT in its current tax status while still tapping the portfolio for liquidity for other investments. (Should also be confirmed for your specific situation with your CPA). 
  • Minimum portfolio value at inception: $2  million
