We at A. B. Nicholas specialize in one thing only:  delivering the U. S. market’s best institutional stock portfolio credit line programs for securities  owners. We offer a carefully crafted, time-tested, super low-interest credit line with many of the market’s most borrower-requested features without sacrificing security one iota. We  created LeverageLine for those who need something better than the standard high-interest, low-LTV brokerage margin loan in a versatile, business-client-focused funding vehicle.

We do not accept 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 a prerequisite to receiving funds. And your lender is always a top-tier, household-name, institution with loan managers hand-picked for their reputation and experience. These are  fully licensed, FINRA-member executives employed by your lending institution who have agreed to offer our ABN-designed LeverageLine wholesale-rate stock portfolio loan financing model in advance, direct to you. Nowhere else is that available. 

We call ourselves America’s Stock Portfolio Lender and we’re  proud to display a Better Business Bureau rating of A+ for ten years running by committing ourselves to delivering the most secure, feature-rich securities-based stock portfolio credit line in the market. We are also the only stock portfolio lending operation to offer unique, specialized features attuned specifically to franchise buyers, business acquirers, and real estate investor borrowers.
