About the Euronext Lisbon (XLIS) Exchange
Portugal’s Euronext Lisbon (XLIS) Exchange is part of the Euronext Pan-European Stock Exchange. Based in Lisbon, the XLIS handles trading in financial instruments including private and public bonds, equities, trust units, warrants, and Exchange Traded Funds.
The XLIS official index is the BVL General Index. It includes the value of all of the listed shares on the market.
The Euronext Lisbon (XLIS) Exchange was established in 2002. This was after the country’s first exchanges were closed down in 1974 following a military coup. A trading market restructuring also took place in the 1990s. The XLIS has since established itself as a key European market catering to numerous European companies.
With Portugal being a developed and high-income country mainly focused on exports, its XLIS exchange is a sound one with a number of quality participating companies whose shares can be used to secure stock loans.

How Much Can I Borrow?
How much you can borrow depends on the amount of shares you own and the value of those shares. The loan amount also depends on the trading volume of those shares against which you want to borrow.
Stock loans can range from $50 000 up to $5 million. Our team can guide you regarding eligible loan amounts.
How Long is the Loan Term?
Our loan terms — that is the length of time before the loan must be repaid — are typically 36 months. We also offer 12 or 24 month repayment periods in some situations.
How Do Stock Loans Work?
Also known as securities lending, these loans are available to help investors keep the stock they own while still having access to the cash they need in order to make other investments. Our borrowers gain the opportunity to dip into the value of their non-marginable stock quickly and easily without having to wait a long time for the money.
Our loan amounts are dependent on characteristics of the collateralized security, including the number of shares, price, volatility, and additional criteria. By transferring your stock to us, you can be assured of receiving a loan against its value. All you have to do is make quarterly interest payments during the life of the loan. We keep the process simple: once you fully repay the borrowed amount, your stock will be transferred back to you.
