US Capital Global Securities Launches $150 Million Debt Security Offering for Global Precious Metals Trading Firm
San Francisco-based private financial group engaged by global precious metals firm, Metals House Inc., as lead placement agent for capital raise.
SAN FRANCISCO, April 2019 – US Capital Global Securities, an affiliate of US Capital Global, is offering to accredited investors a $150 million gold-backed debt security investment in privately held precious metals arbitrage company, Metals House Inc. (“Metals House”), a Cayman firm with offices in Miami, Toronto, Dubai, and Hong Kong.
The investment opportunity combines the collateral backing of physical gold with a senior secured 8% coupon debt instrument. Approximately 95% of Metal House’s total capital base is backed by physical precious metals (gold and silver) inventory and USD currency, with inventory hedged against market fluctuations. With operating subsidiaries in both supply and demand countries, Metals House can source and deliver precious metals through its fully licensed trading subsidiary in the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC).
Headquartered in San Francisco, US Capital Global is a full-service private financial group with an established track record in investment banking and capital raise services. Its registered broker-dealer affiliate, US Capital Global Securities, LLC, is acting as the exclusive placement agent for the debt security raise for Metals House.
“We are excited to have US Capital Global Securities’ experienced team assist us in this capital raise,” said Trevor Michael, Founder and Executive Chairman of Metals House. “Most gold trading firms are small, undercapitalized, and unable to comply with the hugely restrictive compliance and regulatory requirements of large bullion banks. We believe there is a structural gap in the market, which we aim to fill through our institutional trading platform.”
“It is a pleasure serving Metals House as its lead financial advisor,” said Charles Towle, CEO at US Capital Global Securities. “This global trading firm is managed by professionals with deep industry expertise from firms specializing in gold and precious metals markets. The opportunity to participate in this $150 million secured debt investment in Metals House is now open to eligible investors.”
