If you wish to make purchases but have shares instead of cash in your account, the solution is to take out a loan against your shares.
We extend loans to our customers that are proportionate to their portfolio. Their shares are identified by Halk Invest and taken as collateral within the framework of the criteria determined in accordance with the legislation.
Customers who have requested to sell or to give an order to sell capital market instruments that they do not own are offered the option of Short Selling. Fulfilling the obligation of exchange with regard to sales by borrowed capital market instruments is also considered Short Selling.
