ANZ Share Investment Loan


Boost your Investment Power

Borrowing to invest with a margin loan has the potential to be an effective and tax-efficient way to help grow your wealth. You can use your investment loan to build your share or managed fund portfolio, giving you more exposure to potential gains. If your investments rise in value, you’ll multiply the value of your returns — simply because you have more money invested.

But if they fall, your losses can be multiplied too, so it’s important to understand the risks.

How it works

Your margin loan is backed by approved security you provide — usually shares, managed funds or cash — plus potentially the investments you buy.

How much you can borrow to invest depends on your loan to value ratio (LVR) — generally between 30% - 80% of the market value depending on the individual stock or managed fund on ANZ’s Approved Securities List (ASL).

ANZ Share Investment Loans offer competitive LVRs, with even better terms when you meet our diversification criteria. You’ll also enjoy one of the highest levels of choice and diversification of any investment loan, with an extensive range of approved shares and managed funds.

Diversified Portfolio Features

If you hold a diversified portfolio, you may benefit from activating the Diversified features of your ANZ Share Investment Loan.

This feature provides higher LVRs against many of the approved securities allowing you to create a larger or more diversified portfolio, or create a greater cushion against a potential margin call.

Cross-Rewards Program

The Cross-Rewards program offers a discounted interest rate on your ANZ Share Investment Loan if you have placed enough trades within the calendar month.

If you make a qualifying number of trades using your ANZ Share Investment Loan account (and/or your linked ANZ Share Investing accounts), and you have a standard variable ANZ Share Investment Loan, you'll receive a discount on your interest rate the following month.

What are the risks?

Here’s a summary of some of the things you need to be aware of:

  • The value of your investments could fall instead of rise, risking some or all of the money you invested and the security you provided.
  • The potential for accelerated returns means your potential losses are accelerated too.
  • If the investments linked to your loan fall in value, your loan may no longer be adequately secured and you may receive a margin call. In this case, you’ll need to bring the loan back to secure gearing levels, providing additional cash or security for the loan, or by selling investments. Find out more about margin calls
  • If you don’t meet your margin call within 24 hours, we can sell some or all of the investments used to secure your loan.

To make sure you’re across all of the risks involved with margin lending, and what you can do to help minimise your risk, read the PDS (PDF 129kB) and seek professional financial advice.
