Our Credit Line Programs

We at A. B. Nicholas offer two outstanding programs for owners of stocks, bonds, 
mutual funds and other eligible securities portfolios: LeverageLine and OpLine.

For Real Estate Investors & Franchise Buyers


Our LeverageLine credit line is our flagship program for the broader borrowing market, though it was originally designed for the first-time franchisee. Today it serves anyone who needs to tap their portfolio securely without the sales of shares.

For UPREIT Shareholders


Our OpLine credit line program is for those who own Operating Partnership Unit REITs (Real Estate Investment Trust shares) also called OPUs. Use these tax deferred securities as collateral, without having to sell or convert into taxable REIT format.
