Leveraged Margin Loans
This year, Canstar has researched and rated 12 providers with 14 margin loan products in Australia. Canstar is pleased to congratulate Leveraged on achieving our 5-star rating for outstanding value margin loans. This is the first time we have rated margin loan products from Leveraged and we congratulate them on receiving a 5-star rating this year.
Why Leveraged won a 5-star rating for margin loans
Leveraged is able to maintain an extensive list of acceptable securities alongside a competitive price proposition.
In particular, the Direct Investment Loan currently offers the lowest fixed rate in the market at 4.70%. They also offer a variable rate of 5.50%, which is just 0.20% shy of the lowest rate on offer.
Additionally, the product offers a total of 603 ASX listed companies as acceptable securities.
