First Capital offers margin trading which allows you to leverage the portfolio of shares* you already own to purchase additional shares and access a convenient line of credit. With the possibility of borrowing up to 50% of current market value of shares* you can make higher potential returns.
We offer competitive rates on your margin loan.
Flexible Repayment Terms
There is no set repayment schedule as long as you maintain the required level of funds in your account. Interest charges on outstanding balances are posted to your account monthly. Interest received will be automatically applied to your margin balance.
Earn Additional Interest
Cash balances can earn additional interest for you.
We provide up-to-date information to facilitate timely trading decisions on your part. If you use online trading you will be able to view real-time margin balances. We make margin alerts, including margin call notifications, through telephone and via email to keep you well informed.
We can help you to view current margin requirements on each of your positions, calculate potential impact of hypothetical trades, and see how price changes in the market can influence your margin requirements and margin balances.
