Margin Financing

Margin trading is essentially borrowing funds from a broker to purchase securities such as shares. When you trade on margins by using the funds in your account as collateral, you can purchase more securities and as a result increase your trading power.

Expressed as a percentage, the margin represents the amount of funds you can have in your margin trading account.

Benefits of Margins

Boost Your Trading Power

With margin trading, you can enjoy a huge boost in your ability to trade through leverage. A 50% margin effectively doubles your trading power, allowing you to invest your capital more efficiently.

Make Your Investments Work Harder

Pledging your existing equities as collateral helps your assets work harder for you.

Enjoy Low Interest Rates

Trading on margins means an investor has to pay interest on the loan effectively taken out from a broker. At UOB Kay Hian, we maintain interest rates at as low as 7% for securities.
