Securities Based Lending

Securities Based Lending is the ideal vehicle for getting quick access to funds - without having to liquidate securities. If you are looking to expand your investment portfolio to include an additional investment portfolio, finance new business opportunities or invest in real estate, our Securities Based Lending solution gives you direct access to funds.

This innovative solution is unique as it allows you to borrow against your investment portfolio without having to liquidate your securities, which means that you are never out the market.

Determining your individual lending needs

We review your portfolio alongside your credit profile to determine a facility amount that is realistic, manageable and tailored to your borrowing profile. When determining your facility size, we consider a number of factors including:

  • The liquidity and diversity of your stocks
  • The market value of your portfolio
  • Your ability to make consistent repayments the maximum loan amount you can qualify for will depend on how well your portfolio is diversified.
