As a global financial institution, our top priority is managing risk, regulatory compliance and AML considerations. For over 20 years, EquitiesFirst has worked to protect borrowers through a robust infrastructure to mitigate a wide variety of risk factors and prevent fraud. The measures we take help EquitiesFirst, our borrowers, and our partners remain safeguarded against possible improprieties.
“Integrity and diligence are at the heart of our business. We work with some of the most successful investors and entrepreneurs in the world and they expect no less.”
The firm’s founder and CEO, Alexander Christy, Jr. is recognized as a pioneer in equity-backed lending and frequently sought-after for his insight and expertise.
Since 2002, EquitiesFirst has completed over 1,000 transactions, scaling organically as a self-funded, private investment firm. Our prudent collateral management and broad diversification have made sure that that our borrowers’ shares were returned at loan maturity when the loan principal was repaid.
At any given time, our broadly diversified investment portfolio holds several hundred positions across sectors, geographies, and times to maturity, to help protect and secure our portfolio resilience irrespective of broader market conditions.
EquitiesFirst is fully privately-owned and only invests its own proprietary assets. EquitiesFirst does not have external financing or debt, nor do we manage capital from external investors. This safeguards the stability of our capital, removing liquidity risk and contagion risk from within our portfolio.
As a global financier, EquitiesFirst executes financing seamlessly across regulatory regimes and time-zones, based on a robust leadership and operational structure that adapts quickly to changing circumstances and market conditions. EquitiesFirst and its regional subsidiaries are licensed and regulated across multiple jurisdictions, operating in most of the major financial markets around the world.
