Margin against Fixed Deposit and MF


#1

Hi.

Does Zerodha offer margin against FD and MFs? Investors with sizable fixed income and mutual fund portfolio should be able to use it as collateral against F&O margin.

Any plans to offer this?

FD’s is not possible as they are not currently in demat form. Gsecs/Tbills are possible.

MF’s currently no, but we are working on allowing all growth funds with no lock in to be pledged.

Thanks Nithin. Need to check how Gsecs/Tbills stand against corporate FDs.
