What is Maximum Gearing Ratio (MGR)?

The Maximum Gearing Ratio (MGR) is the maximum amount we will lend expressed as a percentage against your portfolio, as determined by us from time to time. The MGR is published on our Accepted Securities List.

When your account is in Margin Call, you must immediately adjust your gearing level so that it is below the lower of Base LVR, or the Maximum Gearing Ratio. A Margin Call must be met by 2pm Sydney time on the next business day after a margin call is triggered.

For further clarification on MGRs, please contact our Margin Lending desk on 13 17 09 or +61 2 9115 1402 if calling from overseas, 8am to 6pm (Sydney time), Monday to Friday.
