Example 1: Assume you would like to pledge S$10,000 worth of your marginable Unit Trusts. This allows you to purchase up to $10,000 more of marginable Unit Trusts or $5,000 more of non marginable Unit Trusts.

Example 2: Assume instead, that you would like to deposit $10,000. This allows you to purchase up to $20,000 marginable Unit Trusts.

For both Example 1 and Example 2 (please refer to the first FAQ), you pay SGD0.84 (3.08% x 10,000 / 365) per day. It is accrued daily and compounded at the end of the month.

All new Phillip Investment Account – Margin (M) will have an initial credit limit of S$50,000. Please contact your trading representative or financial adviser for limit revision.

Margin Ratio is used to compute the amount of investment you can make using leverage and for the purpose of computing margin calls.

1 Collateral = Market value of Unit Trusts x 0.7 (Financing Factor for Grade B)
2 Ledger (Debit Balance) = the amount you borrowed to buy additional Unit Trusts

Where MR is ≥ 140% the account is deemed to be within a healthy range.

Where MR is 130% ≤ MR < 140%, client is not permitted to buy any additional Unit Trust using leverage even if he has available credit limit; client may sell his existing holdings to reduce his Debit Balance.

Margin Calls:

120% ≤ MR < 130% : Client is required to satisfy margin call within 3 market days including the date of notice to restore the MR to at least 130%.

MR < 120% : Client is required to satisfy force-selling call on the same day before 3:00 pm to restore the MR to at least 130%.
