More than just a competitive rate

BT Margin Lending offers competitive fixed rates – speak to your margin lending State Manager or one of our margin lending specialists to find out more.

By taking out a BT margin loan, your client can:

  • Access additional funds to capitalise on share market opportunities when they arise; 
  • Lock in a competitive fixed rate; 
  • Diversify across shares, ETFs and managed funds; 
  • Use the extra funding to help manage portfolio risk; 
  • ‘Unlock equity’ in an existing share portfolio, thereby freeing up funds without selling; 
  • Avoid using the family home as security.

Like any form of lending, margin lending also carries some level of risk. The key risk is that if the loan balance exceeds the limits set, a margin call will be received. Other common risks are:

  • Negative market movements; 
  • Interest rate rises; 
  • LVR reductions or removal;
  • Dividends from investments not received; 
  • Taxation law changes.
