Hilliard Lyons Has Solutions for Your Borrowing Needs
Borrowing on Margin
Even those with significant income and collateral can find it difficult to get loans approved in today’s environment. As a Hilliard Lyons client, you can use the margin power of your own assets as collateral for a loan. Whether you need short-term credit or a loan large enough to cover a mortgage, your Hilliard Lyons brokerage account may be the answer.
You can borrow up to 50% of the value of your marginable assets for any need you may have. (You cannot borrow against a retirement account, such as your IRA). There’s no loan application to complete and no credit checks. You simply call your Financial Consultant and request the funds. We’ll send you a check or deposit funds in your account.
It's that easy, and you pay back the principal and interest on your own terms, as long as the margined securities in your account maintain a sufficient value.
Carrying securities on margin does come with market risk that you should consider. If the value of your securities fall below maintenance, you will be required to deposit funds to bring the margin balance back in line with the value of your account or Hilliard Lyons can sell your margined securities to fulfill your percentage requirement.
Your Hilliard Lyons Financial Consultant can help you determine if borrowing on margin is a smart choice for you after a careful review of the “Risks of Margin Investing”. If it is, all you need to do is review and sign our Margin Agreement. If margin lending isn’t right for you, Hilliard Lyons has other lending options available as well (See "Hilliard Lyons Private Banking" below).
