CommSec Margin Loan
A CommSec Margin Loan allows you to expand your portfolio by borrowing against your existing shares and managed funds and can also contribute regular payments to continue to build your portfolio.
Direct Funds, the direct investment service, provides individuals with access to a range of investment and super funds offered by Australia’s leading asset managers.
The Commonwealth Bank Protected Loan allows individuals and Self Managed Super Funds to borrow to purchase shares in two payments.
You choose the amount you wish to borrow and protect (between 50% - 100% of the share price), as well as the shares in your portfolio, the term and the interest rate type.
During the term you receive the dividends and franking credits from your share portfolio. You also pay interest on the loan.
