ASTOR ASSET MANAGEMENT
Astor Asset Management provides creative financing solutions
within the greater structure of an ultra-high net worth
investor’s asset management plan.
Astor Asset Management brings a new dimension to the forefront of an ultra-high net worth investor’s wealth management strategy and plan. Investors formulate bespoke plans either through their own independent financial advisors or through one of the many independent experts, analysts, and brokers in our vetted referral network. Investors then integrate Astor’s financing services and liquidity solutions into those plans to leverage the hidden cash potential that is locked into investment assets. Investors retain an interest in their assets while using that locked-in value to expand business and personal holdings.
An Astor financing transaction avoids the immediate capital gains tax consequences that can erode the value of a portfolio when assets are sold to free up capital for alternate investments. The investor’s portfolio continues to be managed under a discretionary or advisory protocol, or under such other structures as the investor might have developed in consultation with a financial advisor. Our services and solutions impose no adverse restrictions on an investor’s credit profile, and the investor can seek multiple financings with no crossover among transactions.
Astor Asset Management’s financing services are founded on a liquidity model that large investment banks and brokerage houses have been using for more than twenty years. As the securities markets expanded in the latter half of the twentieth century, those institutions amassed holdings comprising billions of dollars of publicly-traded securities. A substantial portion of those securities was in static portfolios that were not actively traded but were instead held for long-term value. The institutions opened the value of those securities by using them as collateral in securities lending transactions.
Astor Asset Management adapted this model for the benefit of individual investors with its collateralized stock loan program.
Unlike margin loans that are limited to securities that meet strict and limited criteria, our stock loan program is appropriate for a broad range of publicly-traded securities, including stock that an investor might have acquired through a recent IPO and lower-priced securities. Our primary collateral limitation is that we only lend against stock that meets certain minimum trading volumes. Our financing and lending experts create a custom lending solution for each client that furthers the goals of the client’s greater wealth management plan.
The stock lending industry is in a meteoric growth phase, and new collateralized stock loan sources are seeking to enter the industry almost every day. Unlike those sources, Astor Asset Management has been a direct funding source for stock loans from the industry’s inception. More critically, Astor’s lending and liquidity transactions are all closed, funded, and administered internally within our organization. We do not flip our transactions to third parties and we maintain a fully transparent relationship with each of our clients from loan application to termination.
Many of our clients have procured multiple collateralized stock loans from us. When we approve a loan application, we dedicate ourselves to providing best-of-class services for clients that rely on us time and again to generate the liquid capital they need for all of their business and personal needs.
Astor Asset Management specializes in being a premier resource for independent financing and liquidity transactions and related services to an exclusive array of individuals and institutional clients, including ultra-high net worth investors, family offices, foundations, official institutions, municipalities, endowments, and pension plans. We believe that supreme excellence lies in simplicity and efficiency and, therefore, in our financing strategies we utilize a straightforward and uncomplicated approach. With this principle as a leading guide, we help individuals and institutions create the best possible decision-making framework through intelligent financing transactions guided by independent investment policy advisors.
Capital preservation and long-term growth are paramount to our clients, but we also understand the complex and ever-changing organizational goals, objectives, and spending needs. We provide our clients simple, transparent, and operationally efficient liquidity solutions to respond to those goals, objectives, and needs. Our recourse and non-recourse securities lending platform offers the most flexible, creative, and competitive stock loan solutions in the market. Whether you need a loan to purchase your dream $300M yacht, complete a $500M marina development, expand a $700M production line or complete a $1B reverse merger, our team can facilitate your goals and objectives.
