Understanding the potential risks of a Stifel Pledged Asset (SPA) Line of Credit 
Speak with your Financial Advisor about your risk tolerance level, market fluctuations, and specifically the potential risks associated with a Stifel SPA Line of Credit. 

The SPA Line of Credit is a demand loan using the assets in the account as collateral.  If the minimum required value of the collateral is not maintained, the account holder will be required to:  (1) post additional qualified collateral, (2) repay a portion or all of the debt, or (3) forfeit that shortfall in value of pledged assets to Stifel Bank & Trust.  If the call is not met, Stifel Bank & Trust can liquidate some or all of the assets in the SPA Loan Account.  If terms of the account are not maintained, Stifel Bank & Trust may call the loan due and payable.  Stifel Bank & Trust will attempt to communicate with you to determine the right course of action to alleviate a collateral shortfall. Stifel Bank & Trust has the right to sell securities as needed without your consent to meet a collateral call.

Trust and fiduciary services are provided by Stifel Trust Company, N.A. and Stifel Trust Company Delaware, N.A.
