According to Al Christy of Equities First Holdings, stock-based loans are very different from the margin loans, while most people do not recognize the differences between the two loans, there are many marked differences. For this reason, stock-based loans do not require you to state the intended use of the loan. On the other hand, margin loans must be stated to get a qualification. Moreover, the stock-based loans have a lower interest rate than the margin loans. For the margin loans, you will get a harder qualification criterion than the stock-based loans, for this reason, stock-based loans have been adopted on a massive scale in the world.
