We understand opportunities knock when least expected. Depending on your situation, a Securities Based Line of Credit can be an ideal and flexible capital source that is easy to establish and maintain. A Margin loan offers another resourceful financing solution that is easy to set up, allowing you to determine your repayment schedule and the amounts all while leveraging your existing securities.

1Margin or a Securities Based Line of Credit may not be suitable for all clients. The proceeds from a Securities Based Line of Credit cannot be used to purchase or carry margin securities. Borrowing on securities based lending products and using securities as collateral may involve a high degree of risk including unintended tax consequences and the possible need to sell your holdings, which may lead to a significant impact on long-term investment goals. An investor can lose more funds than he or she deposited in the account. Market conditions can magnify any potential for loss. If the market turns against the client, he or she may be required to deposit additional securities and/or cash in the account(s) or pay down the loan. The securities in the pledged account(s) may be sold to meet the margin call, and the firm can sell the client’s securities without contacting them. An investor is not entitled to choose which securities or other assets in his or her account are liquidated or sold to meet a margin call. The firm can increase its maintenance margin requirements at any time and it not required to provide an investor advance written notice. An investor is not entitled to an extension of time on a margin call. The interest rates charged for a Securities Based Line of Credit are determined by the market value of pledged assets and the net value of the client’s Capital Access account. The interest rates charged for Margin are determined by the amount borrowed. For additional information on margin, visit http://sec.gov/investor/pubs/margin.htm.
