First Citizens Launches Streamlined Solution for Securities-Based Lines of Credit with Supernova Technology

Supernova is excited to be the securities-based lending partner of choice for First Citizens Wealth Management and to provide easier access to securities-based lines of credit to more investors than ever before。

RALEIGH, N.C., June 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – First Citizens Wealth Management recently launched the First Citizens Easy Access Line, which provides securities-based lines of credit (SBL) to clients in all 50 states through a partnership with Supernova TechnologyTM. The Supernova partnership supports an easier and more efficient digital experience for advisors and clients.

“A securities-based line of credit can be an important tool — whether clients have a specific, near-term need or just require ready access to cost-effective liquidity,” said First Citizens Private Banking Director Steve Gilland. “First Citizens now provides SBLs for clients of select third-party investment managers and, thanks to Supernova Technology, we can now quickly help these clients access their liquidity when the need arises. Easy implementation, flexibility, and attractive pricing make the line an ideal complement to investment portfolios.”

With the First Citizens Easy Access Line, clients will also be able to borrow money using their own First Citizens-managed non-retirement investment portfolio as collateral. It allows clients to remain invested and keep their asset allocation strategy in place, while still having easy access to the liquidity they need.

“With the integration with First Citizens Bank, our technology is now providing more investors with easier access to securities-based lines of credit than ever before. Our solution enables a faster, more collaborative, and transparent experience through the life of the loan,” said Tao Huang, CEO of Supernova Technology. “We are excited to be the partner of choice for First Citizens and are committed to providing its private bankers, financial consultants, and a broader group of their customers with fast and easy access to SBLs through our robust, digital technology solution.”
