A Securities-Backed Line of Credit (SBLOC) gives you the freedom to access the value of your investment portfolio without disrupting any of the investments within it. You can use an SBLOC for almost anything: a real estate purchase, a tax bill, tuition payment – anything, in fact, except the purchase of additional securities. An SBLOC will give you the liquidity you want – quickly, easily and seamlessly – for the opportunities your life presents you with.

Your Portfolio Remains Intact

Put simply, an SBLOC allows you to borrow against the value of the securities in your portfolio – the individual investments you’ve made will remain untouched. Your new liquidity comes without disrupting your carefully crafted investment strategy or asset allocations – and it’s created without any unexpected tax consequences for you.

Convenient Access

You access your new SBLOC with personalized checks or free wire transfers anytime you need funds.

You’re In Control of Your Funds
