Understand how we calculate your buying power and borrowing potential amount.

Banking Part of: Guides > Guide to iWealth

Borrowing Potential

  • Borrowing Potential is an indicative amount (subject to credit approval) you can request to borrow based on the collateral value of your current portfolio assets, minus your liabilities.
  • Collateral value of current portfolio assets includes all pledged asset positions, including cross-pledges. It does not include miscellaneous Assets (E.g. Property or Insurance policy).
  • Liabilities does not include Cross Currency Exposure (an additional FX haircut that is applied when your liabilities are covered by collaterals that are on different currency), MRTL-P and Term Loan Facilities.

Buying Power

  • Buying Power is the available cash in your portfolio for investing, and includes debit/credit amounts of pending transactions that are verified. It also includes cash that has been pledged as collateral for credit facilities, which may not be entirely available for purchasing stocks online.
  • Buying Power does not include earmarked monies for purchase/redemption of products that have not been verified yet, and is automatically updated upon verification of new transactions.
