At Firstline Securities, our clients get access to an investment opportunity normally solely given to large corporate investors, that is Direct Note Investments. These type of investments typically have limited spacing, a higher rate of return than given at retail banks, and a wide range of risk ratings and time horizons.
Past Direct Note Investment opportunities presented to Firstline clients include projects such as creating the first ever Eurobond in the Eastern Caribbean with the Government of St Vincent and the Grenadines, and high-growth companies such as Cameron Oil & Gas.
Firstline clients are given first-pick access to all the Direct Note Investments currently within our investment stable.
Examples Of Companies & Projects Previously As Direct Note Investments:
What Exactly Is A Direct Note Investment?
A direct note investment originated by Firstline usually takes place as a limited offering to 35 or less qualified investors under TTSEC regulations. Anyone may invest in a public offering registered with the TTSEC which is different to a limited offering.
Information on the risks and rewards of the investment are provided in both types but tend to be a lot more voluminous and published in the press, for the public offering.
How Are Projects And Companies Chosen?
Our experienced Corporate Finance Team screens a mixture of investment requests we receive and promising companies/projects we have noted, within the Caribbean market.
We select the investment opportunities based on a range of predefined criteria like current market traction (sales growth), business model scalability, management expertise, and more.
What Are The Benefits Of Direct Note Investing?
Direct investments generally offer a higher return for accepting the risk of the company receiving the investment vs an investment in the broker/dealer or bank. Investment may be in loan notes or shareholding which offer returns of interest plus principal and dividends respectively.
Both types of investment could benefit from capital appreciation but could also fall in value even though expected interest, principal and dividends are paid. Capital appreciation is often driven by the effect of compounding and market forces/sentiment.
