Your structured lending solutions

In addition to Lombard loans primarily pledged against diversified portfolios, our structured lending facilities provide you with greater flexibility across a range of accepted collateral types, structures and conditions. UBS can also help you choose and implement structured lending facilities tailored to your needs and financial goals.

There is a wide range of collateral that might be used for structured lending:

Single stock positions:

Many entrepreneurs and senior executives have wealth tied up in single stock positions. UBS may lend against those positions to unlock short- to mid-term liquidity.

Concentrated equities, bonds or hedge fund portfolios:

Some investors hold bulk positions in equities, bonds and/or hedge funds. UBS offers tailored financing solutions to lend against those assets.

Private equity limited partnership interests:

Private equity fund investments typically have long investment horizons of several years and rarely have a secondary market. UBS may lend against your private equity fund investments to free up value for future capital calls, investment diversification strategies as well as general personal and corporate purposes.

Unlisted equity investments:

You may hold a substantial stake in an unlisted stock and have a plan to sell your holdings, fully or partially. UBS may lend against your strategic stakes in unlisted shares ahead of a liquidity event.

Additionally, UBS can provide extended financing solutions through

  • risk hedging strategies
  • loans with recourse to strong financial counterparties
  • complex credit structures
