Understanding the potential risks of a Stifel Pledged Asset (SPA) Line of Credit
Speak with your Financial Advisor about your risk tolerance level, market fluctuations, and specifically the potential risks associated with a Stifel SPA Line of Credit.
Securities-based lines of credit involve risk and is not appropriate for all borrowers. The SPA Line of Credit is a full recourse, demand loan using the assets in a brokerage account as collateral and can be called at any time. An increase in interest rates will affect the overall cost of borrowing. The return on your securities must be higher than your financing cost in order for you generate a positive return in your securities account. The market value of your securities may decline, which may result in the value of that collateral no longer covering the outstanding loan amount. In either event, the borrower may be required to post additional collateral and/or repay part or all of any outstanding loan, and Stifel Bank & Trust may call the loan and sell or force the sale of the assets in the collateral account, or any other collateral, without contacting the borrower. The borrower can lose more assets than the borrower is required to deposit in the collateral account. The borrower is responsible for satisfying any amount not covered by the collateral.
Stifel Bank & Trust can increase its collateral maintenance requirements at any time. Stifel Bank & Trust may, in its sole and absolute discretion, demand full or partial payment of the SPA Line of Credit at any time, without notice to cover the loan balance and any interest. The borrower is not entitled to an extension of time to meet a collateral maintenance call.
If pledged securities need to be sold, they may be sold without notice, the borrower may not be offered a chance to deposit cash or additional collateral, and the borrower may not be able to pick which securities will be sold, which can interrupt the borrower’s long-term investment strategy. If pledged securities are sold, this could trigger an unfavorable taxable event for the borrower. Neither Stifel Bank & Trust nor our affiliates provide tax or legal advice. Borrower should consult with a tax professional.
The borrower is entitled to draw against their SPA Line of Credit only if loan terms and collateral requirements are met and the draw request is approved by Stifel Bank & Trust.
There may be alternative ways of borrowing funds that are less expensive and involve less risk. Your Financial Advisor may receive compensation for balances on SPA loans. Your Financial Advisor benefits when the borrower uses the available balance on his or her loan to meet liquidity needs in lieu of selling securities or other investments.
