Borrow to invest

As the value of your portfolio grows, you may be entitled to more dividend payments. These are reinvested and may offset the interest on your loan.

Investing in Westpac BlueChip20 saves you brokerage, with a maximum fee of 0.05% (+GST) for each contribution made.
Around the clock access
Access your portfolio details online 24/7 to check the performance of your portfolio, balance, trading activity and more.
Just about you
Unlike some investments, with a Westpac BlueChip20 you're only impacted by your own decision to enter and exit the market.
Borrowing to invest can increase your potential returns; it can also increase potential losses.
The value of securities may not go up, or, if they go up, the increase in value may not be sufficient to cover costs of the investment.
You need to ensure that you can fund your obligations under your loan including any interest, fees and changes. If you can't the securities will be sold to satisfy these obligations.
You should also consider the taxation consequences and seek independent professional tax advice.
