Take advantage of market opportunities
A margin loan offers access to additional funds, to grow and diversify your investment portfolio.
Boost investment potential, manage risk and be tax effective.
Investors are always on the lookout for ways to boost their investment potential in a tax effective way. A margin loan provides investors the ability to gain access to funds outside their savings to increase their market exposure, diversify into a wider range of shares and other investments to potentially reduce the impact of market volatility and accelerate investment returns.
A margin loan can also be a useful tool for managing tax. Depending on individual circumstances:
- By borrowing against existing investments, investors may be able to take advantage of other investment opportunities without triggering a Capital Gains Tax liability
- Interest paid on margin loans are often tax deductible provided the funds are used for income producing purposes
- Investors may be entitled to valuable franking credits
