Allows candidates to access stocks, bonds and mutual funds without selling.

If your client owns stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other eligible securities, they could borrow up to 80 percent against the value of their investments by taking a portfolio loan. Portfolio loans, also referred to as stock loans or securities-based lending, work like a revolving line of credit — allowing individuals to finance a business or franchise by borrowing (and repaying) at will.

Portfolio loans can be a fast, low-cost approach to small business financing. If your candidate has at least $85,000 in brokerage accounts, they can qualify for a stock loan at a minimum of $55,000. The higher the value of their securities, the more money they can borrow.
