Things you should know

 

Like any investment, there is an element of risk, including:
  • While borrowing to invest may increase your potential returns, it can also increase potential losses.
  • In a volatile market, the value of your investment loan portfolio may fall to a level where it no longer provides adequate security for your margin loan and can trigger a margin call. If this happens you will be required to bring your loan balance back under your borrowing limit.
  • The margin loan is a full recourse loan – even if the value of your security portfolio falls to zero, you are still liable to repay the total loan balance outstanding.
  • We recommend you seek independent financial and taxation advice before acting on this information.
