Interactive Brokers Group, Inc. (NASDAQ GS: IBKR) an automated global electronic broker, announced that, effective January 22, the company plans to increase the interest it charges on its top tier USD based margin loans above $3,000,000 by five basis points. The rate on the largest loan amounts will rise from 1.67% to 1.72%1. Rates will remain unchanged on smaller loans.

“IBKR is increasing the interest rate charged on our largest loans as our total margin loans outstanding are about to exceed $30 billion,” said Interactive Brokers Group Chairman and CEO Thomas Peterffy. “The company is taking this conservative step to slow the growth of margin loans.”

One of the lowest cost online brokers, Interactive Brokers has consistently provided clients with low margin rates. IBKR’s complete schedule of margin loan rates is as follows:

Loan Amount

Rate Charged

Current Rate*

$0-$100,000 Benchmark Rate + 1.5% 2.92%
$100,000.01-$1,000,000 Benchmark Rate + 1.0% 2.42%
$1,000,000.01-$3,000,000 Benchmark Rate + 0.5% 1.92%
$3,000,000 + Benchmark Rate + 0.3% 1.72%

*Currently available rates for USD based loans. Other currency loans are available at comparable rates.

Separately, the firm is expected to take a charge of approximately $84 million to fourth quarter earnings due to the recent enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
