Stock Yield Enhancement Program

The Stock Yield Enhancement Program offers participating accounts the opportunity to earn additional income from fully paid shares by allowing IBKR to borrow those shares from you in exchange for collateral, and then on-lend the shares to traders who want to sell them short and are willing to pay interest to borrow them.

To enable:

  1. Click the User menu (head and shoulders icon in the top right corner) > Settings > Trading > Stock Yield Enhancement Program.
  2. Select the check box in the top right corner to enable. Then press Continue.

  3. Review the disclosure forms and type your name in the box that reads Sign Here, then click Continue.

Note: If you leave this program, you must wait 90 days before you can re-enroll in the program.
