A. Securities Loans
Our Direct Partnerships
BlueSeed has direct relationships with a select number of securities-based financiers who compliment each other; each of these lender's primary office is either based in Hong Kong, the US, the British Virgin Islands or other global locations. We thoroughly understand the mandate of each securities lender which we enter into a direct relationship with to ensure ongoing successful closings.
If you own liquid, publicly traded stock(s) on any (qualified) major stock exchange worldwide, we can likely provide the financing you need typically within 1-2 weeks., depending on the suitable lender we choose for the particular deal.
We typically fund between USD $1million to USD $800 million (and larger financing sizes are syndicated from our network of securities financiers). Funding may be executed in tranches as the size of each tranche depends on the average trading volume value of the stock that is used as collateral, the lender of the lendee's choice and/or on suitability in respect to the lendee's special profile and/or requirements.
How BlueSeed helps Potential Lendees
When a financing deal comes to us, we collect all relevant information about the lendee and the financing deal as a due diligence first step. Once we have completed a KYC, we would comb through our network of securities lenders to determine which lender(s) is suitable to the lendee's particular profile and/or requirements. We then facilitate the introduction and discussions until a deal is successfully closed.
