How does it work?

Investment without Secured Wealth Lending

Let us assume that you have invested US$100,000 into a Mutual Fund. The Mutual Fund pays an approximate income of 4% per annum and achieves a capital gain of 2%. Your annual return on capital would be 6%.

Capital
Income
Capital gain
Annual Return
US$100,000 US$4,000 (4% p.a. of US$100,000) US$2,000 (2% of US$100,000) US$6,000
Investment with Secured Wealth Lending

US$100,000 US$4,000 (4% p.a. of US$100,000) US$2,000 (2% of US$100,000) US$6,000 2.5% p.a.

Through Secured Wealth Lending, assuming the invested Mutual Fund has a Loan-to-value (LTV) of 70%, you can avail a credit facility of US$70,000 against the investment (2.5% interest rate is for illustrative purposes only).

You can use the credit facility of US$70,000 to invest into the same or into a different investment. Assuming you proceeded to purchase the same Mutual Fund that pays an approximate income of 4% per annum.

You could have US$170,000 invested in the same mutual fund earning 4% p.a.

Subject to market conditions, Secured Wealth Lending may increase your potential gains or magnitude of loss as compared to investing without Secured Wealth Lending, as illustrated in the scenarios below2.

Risks of Secured Wealth Lending

Market risks
Depending on market conditions, the value of your collateral may fall. You may then be called upon to “top up” your collateral by substantial amounts or to repay your outstanding credit facility at short notice. If you fail to do so, the Bank may have to liquidate your collateral at a loss to repay any amount outstanding and you would be liable for any amounts still owing subsequently.

Interest rate risks
The interest rate of your credit facility may increase, resulting in a higher interest payment amount for the facility. An increase in interest rate will in turn reduce the return on any investment.

Foreign exchange risks
Your credit facility may be subject to additional foreign exchange risks if it is taken in a different currency other than that of your collateral. If the exchange rate moves against you, the repayment amount of the facility may be affected and/or you may be required to “top up” your collateral.

Change in credit Loan-to-value (LTV) ratio
LTV ratios are subject to periodic review and may change within a short period of time. When the LTV of your collateral is reduced, you will need to have sufficient liquidity to reduce or repay your outstanding credit facility or pledge additional collateral as security for the credit facility.
