Nationwide Smart Credit loans carry risks. If the value of the portfolio falls below a certain level, the client may be required to provide additional securities as collateral or cash to immediately pay down part of the loan. If that’s not possible, some investments may be liquidated, resulting in potential tax consequences.

Specifically, the risks include the fact that the lender may:

– Suspend and/or terminate your line of credit
– Declare all indebtedness immediately due and payable
– Sell any collateral in order to maintain the loan-to-value requirement
– Require additional collateral from you in order to meet the loan-to-value requirement
– Require you to pay down the principal in order to meet the loan-to-value requirement
