Currently, I can pledge only shares in Zerodha and use it for margin trading without paying any interest. I saw news item where Zerodha will start Loan Against Securities, where in I will get money against lending my securities/mutual funds and withdraw that money. My question is whether there will be a feature to pledge mutual funds and just use it for margin trading without paying any interest.
Yes, pledging MF like stocks for trading F&O is coming soon.
Can someone share some info on this:
How do we pledge
Costs, charges etc that are involved
Pros & cons
Why & when to use this option
Any updates on pledging MF’s Feature?
Pledging of liquid MF is needed at Zerodha because of the very poor returns provided by liquidbees.
Full service brokers have been accepting mutual fund units as collateral for fno since many years.
Thanks for the update. Will it be available in 2019 or will have to wait more?
