When a significant portion of your personal net worth is tied up in private stock, you may require liquidity to meet personal or professional goals or to exercise options. We offer solutions that can help.
To obtain liquidity while retaining ownership and delaying tax consequences, our private banking team may be able to structure a private stock loan that leverages the value of your shares when your company is 12-18 months ahead of an IPO or acquisition. Our focus on innovation and our understanding of your industry enable us to lend against securities that other banks cannot.
Another way to achieve liquidity from vested stock while retaining ownership, delaying tax consequences and reducing risk is through a non-recourse loan. When there is no expectation of a near-term liquidity event, we can work with Founders Circle Capital (FCC) to structure such a loan with up to a 36-month term.
With freely salable shares (or restricted shares with company approval), you may be able to access liquidity through FCC's stock purchase program. FCC invests exclusively in high-performing private technology companies with the intention of long-term, value-added partnerships and positive, fair-value solutions. Unlike other secondary market solutions, FCC focuses on alignment between investors, management and employees and works cooperatively to maintain that alignment.
