How Does PacMargin work?

PacMargin finances up to 60% of the value of the purchased shares or securities listed on the Bursa Malaysia Berhad. Nonetheless, the company reserve the right to vary the margin of finance at its sole and absolute discretion from time to time.

To secure a share margin financing facility, a client is required to deposit collateral in the form of cash or shares or securities listed on the Bursa Malaysia Berhad or such other form of collateral that may be determined by the Company from time to time.

PacMargin allows you to leverage up to 150% against pledged shares or securities listed on the Bursa Malaysia Berhad or 250% against cash collateral.

A client’s margin account or credit position is subject to share margin Equity Ratio or Equity/ Outstanding Ratio (ER). ER is derived from the total share value of the collateral pledged or shares purchased against the outstanding amount as stated: –

The ER shall not at any time be lower than the Approved Equity Ratio as set out in the Agreement.

When there is a sudden fall in the value of the shares or securities and the ER falls below the Approved Equity Ratio, margin call will be instituted. You are required to regularise the shortfall by depositing additional securities or alternatively, reduce the outstanding loan within (3) market days following the date of notice by the Company. Failing which, the Company shall have the right to liquidate any or all of the securities in the margin account.

Conversely, when the investor’s ER exceeds the Approved Ratio, the excess cash / shares can be withdrawn from the account, or more stock can be purchased without additional cash.
