A loan against a mutual fund works by allowing investors to borrow money against the value of their mutual fund holdings. This type of loan is also known as a "loan against securities" or "margin funding."
To obtain a loan against a mutual fund, investors must pledge their mutual fund units as collateral with the lender. The lender will then lend a certain percentage of the value of the mutual fund units, which can typically range from 50% to 80%. The loan amount and interest rate will vary depending on the mutual fund and the lender.
The loan can be used for any purpose, such as for personal or business expenses, or for investing in other securities. The borrower will be required to pay interest on the loan amount, typically at a higher rate than the mutual fund's returns. The borrower will also be required to repay the loan within a specified period, which can range from a few months to a few years.
If the borrower is unable to repay the loan, the lender may sell the pledged mutual fund units to recover the loan amount. Therefore, investors must carefully consider the risks involved before opting for a loan against a mutual fund.
