Equities First Holdings, one of the leading advisory and investment firms around the world, was first established in 2012 in London, United Kingdom, where today it has its central office. From the very beginning, Equities First Holdings has been geared at providing sound investment advice to its clients, and has, over the years, built a very substantial portfolio by doing this. Today, the portfolio of Equities First Holdings consists of many startup companies around the world, as well as some of the most prominent investment banks operating today. Equities First Holding was originally known as Meridian Equity Partners Limited, before being acquired by the company to which it shares its name today.
The merger between the two companies took Equities First Holdings to the next level, as there are now offices located around the world, in places such as Europe, Asia, as well as Australia. The merger also allowed for Equities First Holdings to increase their offices in the United States. Through Equities First Holdings’ rapid expansion, many of the branches of the company have seen an incredible increase in stability and have now been operating almost independently. The final step in creating the new Equities First Holdings was to pay back shares that were used as collateral for the initial deal. An announcement was recently made that those shares, which numbered 9,786,580, 1,500,000 of which were part of a reimbursement deal, would be returned to Mr. Joel Leonoff, of Paysafe Group PLC on May 2, 2017.
