One of a kind margin loan exclusive to Leveraged.
Power to grow with peace of mind
With the Investment Funds Multiplier (IFM) you can borrow to invest with the added benefit of a repayment plan. In the event of a significant and sustained fall in portfolio value, you can progressively reduce the loan – deposit 1% of the total amount owing each month - until the gearing level is restored to an acceptable level. This provides you with greater certainty about the amount you have to pay, making it easier to manage cash flow.
Add-on features to the Investment Funds Multiplier
Instalment Plus (IP) is a feature that enables you to combine a regular savings and investment plan with your IFM loan account to progressively build an investment portfolio. To get started, all you need is an initial investment of $1,000, a minimum loan of $2,000 plus minimum monthly contributions of $250.
With IP you may:
- buy through the ups and downs of the market
- be able to buy at a lower average price if the overall price is trending upward
- progressively build and diversify and investment portfolio.
Rewards Plus is an additional feature that enables you to earn Qantas Points with your Investment Funds Multiplier to keep your Qantas Frequent Flyer program membership active and help you enjoy the benefits of membership sooner. Best of all, Rewards Plus offers you uncapped points potential.
You earn Qantas Points based on your loan balance and the points are calculated daily. The time points are awarded will depend on your selected interest payment schedule. If you pay interest in-advance, points will be awarded before the end of the month in which you prepaid interest. If you pay interest in-arrears, points will usually be awarded during the month after you pay interest.
The following table shows you how many Qantas Points you could potentially earn using Rewards Plus. This is valid for accounts opened after 1 August 2016.
|Loan balance||Qantas points|
|Less than $150,000||Up to 30,000 points per $100,000 p.a. pro-rata|
