1Margin or a Securities Based Line of Credit may not be suitable for all clients. The proceeds from a Securities Based Line of Credit cannot be used to purchase or carry margin securities. Borrowing on securities based lending products and using securities as collateral may involve a high degree of risk. Market conditions can magnify any potential for loss. If the market turns against the client, he or she may be required to deposit additional securities and/or cash in the account(s) or pay down the loan. The securities in the pledged account(s) may be sold to meet the margin call, and the firm can sell the client’s securities without contacting them. The interest rates charged for a Securities Based Line of Credit are determined by the market value of pledged assets and the net value of the client’s Capital Access account. The interest rates charged for Margin are determined by the amount borrowed. For additional information on margin, visit
