Decisions to roll over or transfer retirement plan or IRA assets should be made with careful consideration of the advantages and disadvantages, including investment options and services, fees and expenses, withdrawal options, required minimum distributions, tax treatment, and your unique financial needs and retirement planning.  Neither Stifel nor Stifel Financial Advisors provide recommendations with respect to rollovers from an employer-sponsored retirement plan.  Once you inform your Stifel Financial Advisor that you have chosen to roll your retirement assets to an IRA with Stifel, your individual investment needs can be addressed.  You should consult with your tax advisor regarding your particular situation as it pertains to tax matters.

Understanding Your Stifel Pledged Asset (SPA) Loan:
 
Speak with your Financial Advisor about your risk tolerance level, market fluctuations, and specifically the potential risks associated with a Stifel Pledged Asset (SPA) Line of Credit.
 
Securities-based lines of credit involve risk and are not appropriate for all borrowers.  The SPA Line of Credit is a full recourse, demand loan using the assets in a brokerage account as collateral and can be called at any time.  An increase in interest rates will affect the overall cost of borrowing.  The return on your securities must be higher than your financing cost in order for you generate a positive return in your securities account.  The market value of your securities may decline, which may result in the value of that collateral no longer covering an outstanding loan amount.  In either event, the borrower may be required to post additional collateral and/or repay part or all of any outstanding loan.  Stifel Bank & Trust may call the loan, and sell or force the sale of the assets in the collateral account, or any other collateral, without contacting the borrower.  The borrower will not be able to select which securities will be sold.  The borrower can lose more assets than the borrower is required to deposit in the collateral account.  The borrower is responsible for satisfying any amount not covered by the collateral.  The borrower is not entitled to an extension of time to meet a collateral maintenance call.   
 
If collateral is sold, this could result in an unfavorable tax event for the borrower.  Neither Stifel nor our affiliates provide legal or tax advice.  Borrowers should consult with their legal and tax advisors.
