**Demand and pay rates vary by security and over time. HilltopSecurities may terminate a loan at any time. Shares loaned out are not protected by SIPC. However, HilltopSecurities maintains cash as collateral, which will amount to at least 100% of the loan. In the unlikely event of HilltopSecurities filing for bankruptcy, you can draw on this collateral, which may be the only source of resolution. Each security will have its own lending rate based on demand.Not all securities will be eligible to loan. The annualized lending interest rate is a portion of the total interest earned on the loaned shares. HilltopSecurities shares income 50/50. Shares on loan often support short selling strategies. Currently, only cash and margin IRA accounts are eligible to enroll in the program.

Important Considerations Before You Enroll

While you participate, you forego voting rights on positions borrowed from your account.
Dividend payments may be issued in cash. Please consult your tax consultant for clarity.
While your shares are on loan, they are not covered under Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC). As such, HilltopSecurities deposits collateral at a minimum of 100% of the loan value. In any securities lending transaction, counterparty default is a risk.
