Direct financing is financing done without the use of an underwriter or broker. In the situation of direct financing, the securities are sold directly to investors in order to avoid the cost of underwriting. Underwriters are usually investment banks who hype up the stock for the initial public offering. Direct financing without the use of underwriters is also SEC exempt in most cases. That eliminates the need to file securities with the SEC.
