June 2022

Leveraged & Equity Global Capital S.A. is pleased to announce its corporate restructuring that the Directors believe is more suitable for the 21st century, the issues the world faces post the Covid pandemic, the heart-breaking scenes from the war in the Ukraine, economic inflation and implied recession.

It is aligned to our long held desire to create a more open investment and financing world.

The Leveraged & Equity Global Capital S.A. funding base remains in the British Virgin Islands primarily for tax neutrality from both a lending and borrower perspective, whilst importantly remaining allied to its use of the British legal system. A system globally accepted and respected

However, we have become increasingly aware of "tax evasion" issues surrounding the BVI and similar locations. Therefore, for transparency we have this month established a UK registered L&EGC, with a fully paid share capital of £500,000 to show substance, transparency and tax adherence., the company is Leveraged & Equity Global Capital (UK) Limited.

The UK company will use the long established Leveraged & Equity Investment Partners and Leveraged & Equity Lessor Partners trading names. Both operations will provide solely advisory services. Either for clients seeking LE&GC BVI based funding or from third party financiers seeking the security of investment supplied by our risk mitigated and structured financing capital stacks.

At a suitable juncture, administratively, the Credit Risk Mitigation company will be incorporated into L&EGC UK.
