Liquidity Without the Disruption: Orion + Supernova Lending, LLC Provide Efficiency in Securities-Based Lending

Life can come at you fast. Whether it’s an unexpected medical bill, a too-good-to-pass-up-on business venture, or the costs that can come with your child’s wedding, having the liquidity you need in your portfolio can make all the difference. 

But many investors hold assets they can’t use to buy something at the store. With Orion + Supernova Lending, LLC, you can use the equity you have built over the years, through various channels, to secure a securities-based line of credit for whatever life throws at you. 

What is securities-based lending?

For those who need cash on hand, securities-based lending presents an opportunity to tap into the value of your holdings in exchange for cash*. A loan is originated with your securities as collateral for almost anything, like a new boat or car. 

How does Supernova Lending, LLC work?

Supernova Lending, LLC allows you to pledge your exchange-listed equities, unit investment trusts, mutual funds, exchange-traded funds priced over $4.00 per share, trusts (revocable and irrevocable), and investment-grade corporate, municipal, and U.S. government bonds for a securities-based line of credit (SBLOC) to use as you please. You can even utilize multiple investment accounts as collateral and combine them into one line with no fees associated. All you are responsible for paying is the interest monthly, provided the SBLOC is in good standing and there has not otherwise been a collateral call.

Supernova Lending, LLC allows all parties—borrowers, lenders, advisors and firms—to easily collaborate throughout the life of the loan, from origination and servicing to risk monitoring and repayment. It is a fast and easy way to get the cash you need for when life happens. 

How does Orion help?

With the latest Orion + Supernova Lending, LLC integration, advisors can streamline the application process for their client using Orion. After logging in to Supernova Lending, LLC from Orion using Single Sign-On functionality, the advisor can pull client data into the application right from Orion. It both saves the advisor time and ensures accuracy. 

After the application is filled out, it is sent to the client for review and electronic signature before it heads to underwriting—no hard paper copies necessary. The process can be completed in just hours, meaning clients can have the cash they need for life’s expenditures quickly and efficiently.
