NAB Equity Lending

If a client wants to establish a new investment portfolio, increase an existing portfolio or free up their capital, margin lending may be a wealth creation strategy you may wish to discuss with them.

What is it?

A margin loan from NAB Equity Lending is a flexible investment loan that can be used for investment purposes such as investing in shares and managed funds. Your client simply provides existing approved shares, managed funds or cash as security for the loan.

They can then use the borrowed money to access a greater range of investment opportunities, because they are not limited to investing their own capital.
