St.George Portfolio Loan allows borrowers to put the funds they borrow to a number of different uses and to change the use of their funds with minimal effort. The product may be the only credit facility that the customer ever needs. -Portfolio Loan credit limit can be divided into sub-accounts (up to 10), each of which has its own sub-account credit limit. The Portfolio Loan credit limit is the sum of all the sub-account credit limits. - As the customer’s financial needs change, they may redistribute any available credit limit between subaccounts eg as they pay down their owner occupier sub-account, they may transfer excess credit limit on this sub-account to their investment sub-account and use the funds to increase their investment holdings. - The customer has the convenience of keeping their transactions separate for budgeting and taxation purposes and the flexibility of changing the purpose of their borrowings whenever they need. - The primary sub-account must be in the names of all the Portfolio Loan borrowers. - The ownership structure for each subsequent subaccount may be different. A borrower in whose name a sub-account is opened is referred to as the subaccount holder. A sub-account holder MUST be one or more of the Portfolio Loan borrowers. - Any Portfolio Loan borrower who is not a sub-account holder of a particular sub-account MUST guarantee that sub-account. - A Portfolio Loan Guarantor who is not a borrower cannot be a sub-account holder. - With the exception of the Primary sub-account, there is the ability to capitalise interest on fixed and variable rate all sub-accounts irrespective of purpose (for both regulated and unregulated sub accounts). There may be taxation benefits in this for the customer. Customers should be encouraged to obtain their own financial advice, especially when they are using any of the sub-accounts for investment purposes.
