    How Much does liquid securities finance cost?

    The costs associated with security financing depend on the risk of the entire transaction, tenor of the loan, affordability for the client, liquidity of the underlying securities, speed of execution and the size of the deal. However, usually it is pretty low and rarely exceed single digits. We have structured deals with interest rates as low as 4-5% per annum + fees. When talking about costs, we encourage the acquirer to consider the cost of money from the perspective of total business plan of a project.

    A hypothetical liquid
    security finance example

    Borrow against securities 5
    Miss Kate Parish is entering into an application for a current liquid security with market value of $7m and is planning to keep the security instrument and resale at a later time or to trade it for profit. She has a choice to:

    A

    Purchase the security estate for 100% her own cash, if she has the purchasing power. Here, she makes an expected profit of more than the purchase price of say 10% in 6-month time and takes hence $700k profit.

    B

    Put down $2m equity and borrow further $5m at say 10% per annum cost (although high number and in reality, it is lower, we have taken a round number for simplicity and includes all fees and expenses etc). After 6 months, securities are sold for 10% profit or $700k, she clears finance costs of $250k (calculated as 5% of $5m because of 6-month time horizon), it is expected that she makes a profit of $450k or 22.5% return on $2m invested, not bad for a $2m investment.

    As demonstrated in a simple example above, although 10% may seem like an expensive cost of money, it makes more sense to turn to financing when one seems to not have the one-time purchasing ability.
