Risks

You are required to acknowledge your consideration of the risks to participate in the Stock Loan Program in the risk disclosure available here. Please also read the following FINRA Alert

 

Securities loaned out by you may not be protected by SIPC

Borrowed securities are not held in your account and are not covered by the provisions of the Securities Investor Protection Act of 1970. Accordingly, the value of the collateral equivalent to the value of such securities may constitute the only source of satisfaction of our obligation to you in the event of a failure to return such securities. 

 

Dividends

Cash distributions paid on securities borrowed over the dividend record date are credited as a "cash-in-lieu" payment, which may have a different tax treatment than the actual dividend from the issuer.

 

Voting Rights

When you loan your shares, you relinquish voting rights. However, if you want to vote your shares, you can recall your loan in advance of the record date.

 

Securities Loaned Out by You Are Typically Used to Facilitate Short Sales

The type of securities that are generally attractive to borrowers in the securities lending market, and which generate the highest loan fees, are “hard to borrow” securities. When you lend your Fully-Paid Securities, it is likely that such securities will be used to facilitate one or more short sales where the borrower is selling shares in hopes that the stock will decline in value (the short seller later repurchases the stock to pay back the stock loan). Since you are holding the shares “long” in your account, the activity of short sellers potentially could affect the long-term value of your holdings.

Consult an attorney or tax professional regarding your specific situation. The projections or other information regarding the likelihood of various investment outcomes are hypothetical in nature, are not guaranteed for accuracy or completeness, do not reflect actual investment results and are not guarantees of future results. All investments involve risk, losses may exceed the principal invested, and the past performance of a security, industry, sector, market, or financial product does not guarantee future results or returns. Consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of a fund before investing. Contact us for a prospectus containing this information.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses of a mutual fund or Exchange Traded Fund (“ETF”) carefully before investing. Before investing in any mutual fund or ETF, you should consider its investment objective, risks, charges and expenses. Contact us at support@ustocktrade.com for a prospectus, offering circular or, if available, a summary prospectus containing this information. Read it carefully. ETFs are subject to market fluctuation and the risks of their underlying investments. ETFs are subject to management fees and other expenses. Unlike mutual funds, ETF shares are bought and sold at market price, which may be higher or lower than their NAV, and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Investment returns will fluctuate and are subject to market volatility, so that an investor's shares, when redeemed or sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. ETFs are subject to risks similar to those of stocks. Some specialized exchange-traded funds can be subject to additional market risks. Leveraged and inverse exchange traded products are not designed for buy and hold investors or investors who do not intend to manage their investment on a daily basis. These products are for sophisticated investors who understand their risks (including the effect of daily compounding of leveraged investment results), and who intend to actively monitor and manage their investments on a daily basis
