We specialize in delivering institutional stock loan and credit line programs for securities portfolio owners willing to use those portfolios as guarantee for an outsanding, custom, low-interest credit line with man of the market’s most client-friendly features. We’re A. B. Nicholas, and we created LeverageLine for those who need the very best stock-portfolio-as-collateral credit line possible . 

We do not take any collateral other than free-trading marketable securities for this program, but our clients never need to give up ownership or sell a single share as prerequisited to fund. And your actual lender? Always a top-tier, household-name, major institution and a hand-picked,  fully licensed FINRA-member advisor at that institution who has agreed to offer the LeverageLine discounted wholesale-rate model to our clients. 

So here we are… America’s Portfolio Lender, proud to sport a Better Business Bureau rating of A+ for five years running without a single complaint during that period, delivering to you with pride the most secure, feature-rich securities based credit line/stock loan program in the market today with specialized features for franchise buyers, business acquirers, and real estate investor clients.
