Equities Collateral rates
Saxo Capital Markets allows a percentage of the investment in certain Stocks and ETFs to be used as collateral for margin trading activities. The collateral value of a stock or ETF position depends on the rating of the individual stocks or ETFs – please see conversion table below.
|Collateral value of position|
^ 60% collateral and 0% collateral can also apply to some stocks on this rating.
* 0% collateral can also apply to some stock on this rating.
Example: 75% of the value of a position in a Stock or ETF with Rating 1 can be used as collateral (instead of cash) to trade margin products such as Forex, CFDs, Futures and Options.
Please note that Saxo Capital Markets reserves the right to decrease or remove the use of Stock or ETF investment as collateral for large position sizes, or stock portfolios considered to be of very high risk.

Transactions in securities will expose you to the volatility of the various stock exchange markets in which the shares, stocks, warrants, bonds, debentures, notes, debts and other securities are traded. In particular, the value of securities may experience downward movements and may under some circumstances even become valueless. Hence there is an inherent risk that losses rather than profits may be incurred as a result of buying or selling securities. Owing to the volatility of the stock exchange markets, you will be exposed to risks of bad delivery of securities purchased.
* Restrictions apply. Please refer to Information Access and Dealing Restrictions for ETFs and Bonds.
