Increase your participation in the share market and accumulate wealth faster through gearing.
Bell Potter Portfolio Lending is a margin lending product offered by Bell Potter Capital. It is for people who want to use gearing to build a strong portfolio of investments and to gain greater market exposure.
Used as part of a comprehensive investment strategy, responsible gearing gives you the potential to accumulate wealth faster than if you only used your own funds to invest, so that you can reach your financial goals sooner. Gearing also has the potential to help you own a more diversified portfolio and may have tax advantages for certain investors.

RISKS TO CONSIDER
Fall in value of portfolio
If your portfolio falls below a certain value – known as the loan-to-value ratio (LVR) – you could face a margin call. You could be required to add more collateral to your loan or to sell down stocks to cover the short call in value.
Interest rate increase
An increase in interest rates may mean that dividend receipts will cover less of the financial costs.
Margin loans are full recourse meaning that if you can’t pay back the loan, other assets owned by you may be sold to repay the outstanding amount.
Securities we lend against
Margin lending is not for everyone and should only be used as part of a wider investment strategy. Bell Potter investment Advisers can provide margin lending advice to help you work out if margin lending is suitable for you.
As part of the application process for retail clients you will need to complete a Suitability Statement, which asks questions about your current income, expenses, assets and liabilities.
