Building Societies have been a part of our global financial services since 1774 when they were first formed in the United Kingdom. Building Societies globally have consistently provided a stable structure to provide a range of financial services to their members.
General Equity, established in 2007, is no ordinary building society as we strive to assist our members to reach their goals. We assist our clients in building their businesses and trade relationships worldwide as the world markets have the greatest volume of trade so no one country is sufficient to deal with the growing demand for good trade products and services.
Beginning in 2015 we began providing expertise and consulting in the arena of taking companies to Public Markets which was a successful listing and GE was instrumental in helping them raise millions of USD. Additionally we have matched capital requirements of these expanding entities with prospective investors.
Our positive and proven track record through good times and bad speaks for itself. General Equity is committed to upholding this tradition of providing financial services that benefit our members in the global financial markets. General Equity after many 1000s of transactions in the last 7 years has only had less than 0.1% in deals that didn’t go the plan for General Equity, this is a very low percentage and speaks for its self.
General Equity has since the middle of 2015 been building its close ties to Asia’s large investment houses that have very large assets in their portfolios and have been supporting General Equity to increase their underwriting of General Equity instrument. The newly established surety bonding insurance relationships to underwrite General Equity’s trade finance and other instruments has now been granted to a value no less than 700 Million USD which adds a very strong rated security for those members who may require the added security in their business or trade.
General Equity is also looking to expand and move its key business to the Asia Pacific region in the next 24 months which will make its business more assessable to its international members, who don’t travel to New Zealand. General Equity is now also currently working on a new listing for an asset management group in Asia who hold assets of in-excess of 33 Billion USD. This has lead General Equity to only deal with high net wealth groups, institutions and international corporations and the need to deal with the public at large is no longer a business model the board of directors intends to continue.
The future success for General Equity will be in its ability to maintain its RMAs with banks and other financial institutions which now General Equity is proud to hold around 300 in over 50 countries worldwide the hard work of our inter banking staff has helped us to work tirelessly to reach this level of success.
