Stock Loans Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can StarCap Finance Partners secure me more money than my broker can, or, in some cases, when my broker cannot lend me money at all?

A: The Securities and Exchange Commission placed restrictions on which stocks brokers can lend against, and on how much they can lend their customers against "marginal" securities. Per our network of conventional lenders, StarCap Finance Partners has a greater range of options available to it.

Q: Why can't my broker hold the shares for StarCap Finance Partners during the loan term?

A: Stockbrokers are not set up to guarantee that their customers, to whom they owe their first loyalty, will not sell shares. In the case of an emergency devaluation, individual brokers are often overworked and unavailable to make emergency trades to protect even their clients, much less StarCap Finance Partners or our network underwriters.

Q: Where does StarCap Finance Partners keep its stock once transfer is complete?

A: StarCap Finance Partners or network underwriter maintains stock with reputable brokerage firms such as Scot Trade Securities and Merrill Lynch. The accounts, in addition to traditional federal SIPC Insurance, also enjoy $150 million in private insurance for stocks within our network.

Q: Why is there a delay from the delivery of my stock to the funding of the loan?

A: Because of recent changes in the law, stock transfer agents are no longer able to verify clear ownership of securities not in their physical possession. StarCap Finance Partners requires the time to verify clear ownership of any issues received. Prior securities counterfeiting problems and DTC transfer frauds have created the need for these increased security measures, which protect both the borrower, StarCap Finance Partners, and its network.

Q: How does StarCap Finance Partners achieve payment?

A: By official bank check sent by Federal Express Overnight or federal funds wire, directly into your checking or savings account.

Q: Can I redeem my loan early?

A: Yes. Your loan can be redeemed anytime usually with no prepayment penalty. This can be accomplished by either sending the outstanding balance to the underwriter, or by calling at anytime and asking to liquidate the portion of stock used as the foundation for your loan necessary to pay the outstanding balance. In which case the balance of the stock will be returned to you promptly.

Q: Do I retain proxy (voting) rights for my stock?

A: No. Unfortunately it is impossible for underwriting, which are lenders, not a stock brokerage firm, to pass proxy rights through for the stocks we receive.

Q: Will I continue to receive dividends?

A: Yes. All dividends received for the stocks you have will be forwarded to you. For your benefit, should underwriting liquidate a portion for the stock (for example should the stock drop below the outstanding balance of your loan, or for other reasons permitted under the lending agreement) you will automatically be reimbursed for any dividend lost as a result of the exercise of discretion.
