There are risks associated with borrowing to invest. Some of these include, but are not limited to, rising interest rates, changes in taxation law and movements in the prices of your investments which may have an effect on your financial position. NAB Equity Lending recommends you speak to your financial adviser before deciding to invest.
It’s important to be aware that while a margin loan can increase gains, it can also magnify losses. As NAB Super Lever is a limited recourse margin loan, the SMSF’s loss is limited to the investments purchased with funds advanced under the NAB Super Lever facility. If the acquired asset needs to be sold to correct a margin call, and the sale proceeds from selling the asset doesn’t completely repay the loan, the individual fund members will need to repay the residual loan balance from sources other than their SMSF.
SMSFs should also be aware of their obligation as trustee of a superannuation fund to formulate and implement an appropriate investment strategy that considers the whole circumstance of the fund and to act in the best interests of the members of the fund. This includes ensuring they’re familiar with the risks involved and have in place adequate risk management procedures to manage the risks associated with borrowing to fund an investment. Relevant to this consideration will be the risks of a leveraged investment and factors such as the diversification of the assets of the superannuation fund and the overall level of gearing of the fund.
It’s recommended that investors take the time to do their research, read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) and talk with their financial adviser before deciding to invest.
