16Questions?Investors should consider their individual risk-tolerance and investment goals. Remember, margin borrowing increases the level of market risk, so the value of the investments can go down as well as up. The client must repay the margin loan, regardless of the underlying value of the securities purchased. Maintenance margin requirements may change at any time without prior notice. If the equity in the client's account falls below the minimum maintenance requirements, the client's B/D will issue a maintenance call requiring the client to deposit additional cash or acceptable collateral. The client is not entitled to an extension of time on a margin call. If the client fails to meet a maintenance call, the client's B/D may be forced to sell some or all of the securities in the client's account to protect its loan, with or without the client's prior approval.This material is for informational purposes only and is not meant as Tax or Legal advice.
