Find the right lending solution for you – whether you need a straightforward loan facility or have more complex requirements, with help from your Lending Specialist.
Flexible, hassle-free lending solutions with on-going support from your personal Lending Specialist.
Your investments can fall as well as rise. You may not get back what you originally invested.
Ease and flexibility
There’s no application charge and you can buy and sell assets at any time, provided you have sufficient collateral with us.
Space to grow
Thousands of globally traded assets have been approved as collateral, and the number is growing.
If you use this service for leverage, you can re-invest, increasing the gross value of your portfolio and potentially increasing diversification. However, while investment leverage can magnify gains in a rising market, it can also magnify losses when the market falls.
Your Wealth Manager will be with you every step of the way, from taking trade orders to giving you market updates.
Using lending to your advantage
Make an immediate purchase, take advantage of an opportunity or be assured of a line of credit for short-term borrowing.
Introduce strategic leverage to your investment portfolio – it could amplify returns in a rising market, though a market fall would amplify losses.
Things to consider
- With a leveraged investment you would be responsible for repaying the loan and interest on it. Adding leverage to your portfolio may amplify returns in a rising market, although losses may also be amplified if the market falls
- Interest rates on the loan may exceed any gain on the investment. They may also change during the term of the loan
- There may be an extra risk if you borrow in a different currency to the currency of the assets in your portfolio
- We recommend you consult your tax adviser before using the service
We will review your portfolio and, if the value drops, or the value of your exposure increases, or if there isn’t enough collateral to support the exposure, we’ll ask you to add more cash or securities to your portfolio. If this isn’t possible, we may have to sell some or all of your assets.
