Hi guys ,
Chasing different approach on getting finance for private company shares .. To date I’ve been using traditional personal loans (unsecured) and negotiating rates with the bank . However last time around I wasn’t able to get a loan at a favourable rate.

bit more elaboration would help to understand what you’re doing?
do you mean trying to get money for you to buy shares in ASX or do you mean trying to get people to buy shares in your private company?FjwagonParticipant@fjwagonJoin Date: 2007Post Count: 2
Apologies for that.. Had my 11pm brain not working.
I am talking about purchasing shares in a firm I work for that is non ASX listed. Isn’t a small backyard dodgy type deal this is a 10,000 employee global firm.
Because it isn’t ASX listed the typical marginal type loans aren’t available . Also what I have found is that the banks won’t really take to account existing shareholdings or values/returns on the investment being a “private investment” I do have equity in my property I could use however not sure if this is the best approach or what other options I could have..
Using a personal loan has had taxation advantages for me however given you rely on dividends to service the loan you have to be very diligent with your cashflow..
Just wondering if anyone has had similar difficulties and if anyone has some creative ideas.
Thanks CharlieX for the responseTerrywParticipant@terrywJoin Date: 2001Post Count: 16,190
No commercial lender will lend you substantial sums without security. Generally private company shares are not worth much in terms of security. You will need to provide land as security to get a decent amount.CharlieXParticipant@charliexJoin Date: 2015Post Count: 98
Private company shares are difficult for lenders, they need trust and verification.
so comes down to what TerryW said.TerrywParticipant@terrywJoin Date: 2001Post Count: 16,190Corey BattParticipant@cjaysaJoin Date: 2012Post Count: 1,010
You need to provide security to borrow funds. One way is to do an equity access against a property which has sufficient equity and then use those funds to make a purchase. Nice and simple – but requires you to have the funds available.
