Already have a margin lender? No problem.

There’s no need to establish a new margin loan. We can execute trades over the phone using margin loans with any margin lender at our standard phone brokerage rates. When you open a margin lending linked account with us, just let us know your existing margin loan number and we’ll make sure your new share trading account is linked to it.
