This came as a bit of a surprise - while most people had never heard of Opes Prime, quite a few people have heard of Lift Capital - in fact, I had been getting LVR updates for their margin loans on Compare Funds, and I'm pretty sure they have been mentioned on InvestEd before. It seems that there are now significant risks of using a margin lender who is not backed by a large institution! I use Leveraged Equities, who are owned by Adelaide Bank, which recently merged with Bendigo Bank. Will be interesting to see how this affects the rest of the margin lending marketplace. Margin lender follows Opes to the wall - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) Did anyone here use Lift Capital ?
