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

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

For both Example 1 and Example 2, you pay SGD0.79 (2.88% x 10,000 / 365) per day. It is accrued daily and compounded at the end of the month.

While profits may be magnified as a result of leverage it is important to note that unfavorable price movements may result in your losses being maginfied. Understanding the initial margin requirements of the Phillip Investment Account – Margin (M)

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%.

The risk of loss in financing a transaction by deposit of collateral may be significant. The Customer may sustain losses in excess of his/her cash and any other assets deposited as collateral with PSPL. The Customer may be called upon at short notice to make additional margin deposits or interest payments. If required margin deposit or interest payment is not made within the prescribed time, the Customer’s collateral or positions may be liquidated by PSPL at a loss without prior notification to the Customer. The Customer should therefore carefully consider whether such a financing arrangement is suitable in light of your own financial position and investment objectives.
