By the way this list excludes Banks. I hope to review modalities for this loans once I get details. However, I do not like margin loans because of the systemic risk in can cause despite its obvious good intentions. It has its advantages but to creating a debt driven bridge between demand and supply is not always the solution to sustaining market lulls. Here is the story including the list I culled from Thisday

In move to forestall a recurrence of the 2008 stock market downturn, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)  Thursday unveiled 32 securities that can be used as collateral for margin loans.

Realising that unsupervised use of margins to fund investment in listed equities contributed to the share price crash in 2008, the SEC and Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) introduced a set of rules to regulate margin lending going forward.
