Easy Loans Against Mutual Fund

A loan against security is sanctioned against a pledge of security such as mutual funds, insurance, etc.


The list of approved securities for LAS loans varied across lenders. Typically, a loan against securities is approved for the following:


  • 1. Mutual fund (Debt, Equity & Hybrid)
  • 2. National Savings Certificate (NSC)
  • 3. Demat shares
  • 4. Bonds

If you’ve pledged shares, you continue to enjoy ownership benefits – rights, bonuses, etc.

In turn, you get an overdraft facility with a limit based on the value of the securities pledged.


You are then free to choose how and when to use the LAS loan funds. The loan against security interest rate is determined only on the amount withdrawn for the period of the loan and is typically lower than that on a personal loan.


The biggest advantage of such a loan is that you can get access to funds quickly whenever you need them without giving up your shareholder rights to dividends and bonuses.


Thus, a loan against security is a good way to meet short-term financial needs.

A loan against securities is a secured loan since the bonds or shares are pledged as collateral.


Typically, the tenure is one year, which you can renew if need be. The loan amount will depend on the type of security you offer.


If you wish to prepay your LAS loan, you can do so without any prepayment charges.
