Whether it’s for short-term liquidity or longer-term needs, SOUND Wealth Management Group and Raymond James can provide a variety of ways to manage the liability side of your balance sheet. Some of the available options include securities based lines of credit, and margin lines.
A Securities Based Line of Credit (SBLC) or Margin account may not be suitable for all clients and investors. The proceeds from an SBLC cannot be used to purchase or carry margin securities. Raymond James Bank does not accept RJF stock as pledged securities towards an SBLC. Borrowing on an SBLC or Margin account 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 quickly deposit additional securities and/or cash in the account(s) or pay down the loan to avoid liquidation. The securities in the Pledged Account(s) may be sold to meet the Collateral or Margin Calls (Calls) and the firm can sell the client's securities without contacting them. Clients and investors are not entitled to choose which securities or other assets in his or her account are liquidated or sold to meet a Call.
The firm can increase its maintenance requirements at any time and is not required to provide advance written notice. Clients and investors are not entitled to an extension of time on Calls. Increased interest rates could also affect LIBOR rates that apply to your SBLC or Margin account causing the cost of the credit line to increase significantly. The interest rates charged for an SBLC are determined by the market value of pledged assets and the net value of the client's Capital Access account. The interest rates charged on Margin loans are determined by the amount borrowed.
