You can borrow up to 40% of your portfolio value via a margin loan at 6.5% interest rate, or 5% if you are an M1 Plus member*.

All M1 clients who sign up for M1 Plus get a 90 day free trial***. This means that you only need to pay the annual M1 Plus membership fee of $125 after the 90 day trial has expired.   

While the M1 Plus membership comes with benefits across all M1 products, here are some examples to help you understand how you can break-even on your M1 Plus membership fee when you only use the M1 Plus interest rate benefit for M1 Borrow Margin loans.
