Stock Loan Case Studies
Senior executives of public companies often hold concentrated positions of a security, yet require access to funds for business or personal needs. Qilin’s non-recourse stock loan is an excellent product which enables them to access their capital, while still maintaining exposure to the public companies stock upside.

Case Study

A private Thai company holds 13% of a public company listed in Hong Kong and is in need of liquidity for expanding their real estate acquisitions. If the Thai company sells the shares, they will lose any potential upside from their public company holdings.

The CEO of the Thai company works with Qilin to set up a non-recourse stock loan. Qilin will lend up to 4.99% of the issued and outstanding stock of the Hong Kong Company at a very competitive Loan-to-value of up to 50% with an annual carry charge of 8%.

As many banks, securities firms and brokerages are moving away from a single share financing solutions, Qilin World Capital has stepped in to fill the void left by those institutions.
