Hurricane Sandy destroyed the waterfront homes for two of our best Northern clients. For them to avoid selling taxable stocks to pay for major repairs, we advised both couples to pledge their eligible investments and establish securities-backed credit lines. Unlike their neighbors who were forced to sell assets or wait for insurance payments, our clients were able to act quickly and secure general contractors to begin rebuilding because they had cash readily available from their credit lines. We advise many clients in hurricane-prone regions to consider a stand-by line of credit before the storm.
After a hurricane, you want to be among the first to schedule contractors to complete your repairs. To make sure you have ample resources available, contact us to perform a hurricane liquidity assessment.
