If your account value drops so that your equity value is below our maintenance threshold, M1 will issue a maintenance call. The maintenance threshold is normally 40% of your account value but M1 may impose additional restrictions based on risk of securities held or portfolio concentration.

When a maintenance call is issued for your account, you will either need to deposit additional cash or sell a portion of your portfolio to resolve the maintenance call.

Unlike some companies, M1 charges no management fees. There are some miscellaneous fees for some services, which you can find here.

M1 Finance gives you unmatched flexibility with how you manage your money, but here are some things to keep in mind when taking out a loan with M1 Borrow.

  • The M1 Borrow base rate is variable and tracks the Federal Funds Rate. When the Federal Funds Rate goes up or down, the M1 Borrow base rate will follow.
  • If your portfolio value declines, your account can trigger a maintenance call and we may need to sell a portion of your portfolio to cover the loan.
  • If you use proceeds from an M1 Borrow loan to buy additional securities in your M1 Finance portfolio, the potential losses in your portfolio will be magnified. Learn more about these and other risks in our Margin Disclosure.
