Loans against assets

We offer you flexible and affordable loans against securities - stocks, mutual funds, bonds and even gold.

How It Works

Step 1: Check Credit Limit

Get an estimate of the loan amount you are eligible for based on the value of your portfolio.

Step 2: Pledge Your Assets

Pledge your assets as collateral against the loan amount you wish to borrow.

Step 3: Instant KYC

Verify your credentials in a completely paperless process.

Step 4: Receive Funds

Withdraw & repay as per your requirement.

Most people are not using their financial assets in their borrowing decisions.

Lower interest rates

Pledging your assets make it less risky for the lender, and hence it results in lower interest rates and better terms for you.

No credit score needed

Given that your loan is backed by the asset you pledge, you can borrow even with low credit score.

Tax Benefits

Instead of selling your assets to fulfil needs, by holding them longer LTCG tax is applied which is lower.

Higher appreciation

Most portfolio return is concentrated in a few days, and pledging your assets instead of selling allows you to stay exposed, giving higher returns.

Instant Funds

For emergency needs, instant disbursed loans are better than selling your assets which can take time to be liquidated.

Flexible fund utilization

You get a credit line against your assets, and can flexibly use the money upto the credit limit, paying interest only on the utilized funds.

FAQ

General Questions

What is loan against assets?

You can borrow money from a lender, by putting your financial assets as collateral - stocks, mutual funds, bonds and gold. The lender will hold the asset until the loan is repaid in full. If you default on the loan, the lender can sell the asset to recover the loan amount. The interest rates on these loans are lower than personal loans, as the lender has the security of the asset.

What are the conditions to avail this loan?

The great thing about such loans are that they are overcollaterised - you wouldnt get a loan amount more than the amount of your assets. Hence, as the lender can sell the asset in case of any default, there is no CIBIL score requirement for such loans. We only expect that your assets are in a digital form ( for eg mutual funds on Zerodha).

Does that mean loan against assets are always better?

It depends on your financial situation. You can use our Calculator to decide whether to go for loan against assets or not.
