Mutual Fund Investment with Wealth Lending

With Wealth Lending, you have more capital at your disposal to invest. Assuming the invested Mutual Fund has a Loan-to-value ratio (LTV) of 70%, a credit facility of $70,000 can be secured against the Mutual Fund investment pledged (at an interest rate of 2.5% per annum, for the purpose of illustration). LTV3 is tagged to the asset.

This additional $70,000 is available to use for investing in the same Mutual Fund, for your personal financial needs or another kind of investment. Assuming the Facility is used for the same investment fund:

Subject to market conditions, Leverage Financing may increase your potential gains or magnitute of loss as compared to investing without Leverage Financing.

You should ensure that you do not commit yourself to investments beyond your means and consider your appetite for losses before requesting for Leverage Financing.

Key Risks

  • Depending on market conditions, the value of investments held as collateral may fall. You may then be called upon to “Top Up” your account by substantial amounts, or to repay your outstanding credit facilities at short notice. If you fail to do so, the Bank may have to liquidiate your collateral at a loss to repay any amount outstanding. You would remain liable for any amounts still outstanding.

  • The interest rate of the credit facility may increase, resulting in a higher interest payment amount for the Facility. An increased interest rate will reduce the return on any investment.

  • The credit facilities may be subject to additional foreign exchange risks, if they are taken in a different currency to that of your collateral. If the exchange rate moves against you, the repayment amount of the Facility may be affected.

  • LTV ratios are subject to periodic review and may change within a short period of time. If the LTV of your collateral is reduced, you will need to have sufficient liquidity to repay your outstanding credit loan, or pledge additional collateral as security for the Facility.

  • In addition to the non exhaustive risks of Wealth Lending, Leverage Financing carries the below risk Magnified risks While Wealth Lending with Leverage Financing can amplify potential investment earnings, it can also magnify potential losses. You could even sustain losses that exceed the value of the original investment amount and the value of your collateral. You should ensure that you do not commit yourself to investments beyond your means and consider your appetite for losses before requesting for Leverage Financing.

  • Balance the risk and return of your portfolio, and better manage the possibility of an “Informative Breach”, “Top-up/Margin call” or “Sell down” Triggers by:
    Limiting the use of your credit facility to ensure that you do not commit yourself to investments beyond your measures.
    Maintaining a steady income stream independent of the collateral to utilize at short notice for a Margin call.
    Diversifying your investment portfolio.
    Servicing your interest charges regularly
