List of Margin Requirements Research Services from Research Optimus

Investment often involves the use of margin debt. Two primary examples are increasing financial leverage by borrowing a portion of the initial investment cost and using securities as collateral for borrowing funds in an investment account. In either case, costs and the potential for forced sales can be impacted by underlying margin regulations such as Regulations T, U and X issued by the US Federal Reserve System Board of Governors. To meet these complex financial challenges, ROP offers the following financial services to help clients make fully informed decisions about margin trading and margin borrowing:

Risk and Benefit Analysis of Margin Tradings

ROP evaluates the costs, risks, and benefits of buying on margin. For margin transactions involving futures, options, short selling, derivatives and other investments, our team uses methodologies such as SPAN (Standard Portfolio Analysis) that calculates margin requirements (previously referred to as performance bonds for futures).

Analysis of Buying on Margin for Securities, Commodities, Options, and Futures

Research Optimus analyzes the different margin requirements for investments such as stocks, corporate bonds, government bonds, financial derivatives, futures, and commodities. The ROP team can analyze cross-margining agreements and margin requirement differences among member firms and trading platforms throughout the world.

Analysis of Margin Loan Alternatives

Research Optimus assesses alternative strategies and sources for borrowing funds instead of margin loans. We examine comparative loan rates as well as timing, terms, and availability of alternative loan strategies.

Daily Monitoring of Margin Account Values

Research Optimus monitors margin accounts to alert investors of impending possibilities for a margin call to meet maintenance margin requirements. When international trading accounts are involved, we can monitor currency fluctuations that can trigger margin calls under certain conditions.

International Margin Lending Rates Analysis

ROP reviews variations in margin borrowing costs in different countries, member firms and investment scenarios. Our analysis can include external factors such as cross-margin benefits and currency exchange rates that can impact the effective margin rate.
