Straits Financial LLC Partners With DrawBridge to Offer Crypto Lending Program to Professional Traders

​​Straits Financial LLC (Straits) has partnered with lending provider DrawBridge Lending to offer a crypto lending program for the professional futures trader and crypto currency investor. Through Equity Trust Company and Gemini Exchange as crypto custodians, loans arranged against the crypto holdings can be used to fund your Straits Financial futures trading account.

This new offering allows for clients to trade futures and options contracts without having to liquidate their crypto holdings. By working together with these partners Straits is able to offer a very competitive program that can help traders build a diversified portfolio for hedging or speculating using the assets they already have.
