  • Example of a leveraged dividend investment strategy using the Quality-Priced Loan feature

    Below is an example of a leveraged dividend investment strategy using the Quality Priced Loan feature (For illustration purposes only).

    Customer A, who provides a cash deposit of S$50,000, purchases up to S$175,000 worth of securities as shown in the table below.

    SG SINGAPORE PRESS HOLDINGS LTD 1 6.2992 2,204.72 35,000
    MY BOUSTEAD HOLDINGS BHD 2 5.3508 1,872.78 35,000
    US CAN IMPERIAL BK OF COMMERCE 3 5.2084 1,822.94 35,000
    HK PCCW TLD 1 8.9078 3,117.73 35,000
    1 8.5052 2,976.82 35,000
    TOTAL       11,994.99 175,000

    1 The purchase amount is the same as the marginable value.

    Based on the above illustration, the blended interest rate on the financing amount of S$125,000 made available to Customer A is 4.3%.  (The blended interest rate is computed based on the proportionate value of Customer A’s holdings of each grade of security which has been charged to OCBC Securities Pte Ltd (“OSPL”) in relation to the financing).  The net interest payable would thus amount to S$5,375 (4.3% of the S$125,000 loaned to Customer A under the Share Financing facility).  

    The table below summarizes the expected return Customer A would earn with and without the Share Financing facility.  With the Share Financing facility, Customer A can expect to earn higher returns due to the lower initial outlay required for the investment.

    With Share Financing 11,994.99 5,375 6,619.99 50,000 13.24
    Without Share Financing 11,994.99 0 11,994.99 175,000 8.85
