Levered portfolio

Levered portfolio

Investment at least partially financed by borrowing.

Leveraged Portfolio

A portfolio that includes at least some securities that were bought with borrowed money. A leveraged portfolio is risky because the securities may result in a loss, which would leave the investor liable to repay the borrowed capital. However, if the securities result in a gain, the investor has essentially made a profit without using his/her own money.
