Enter the portfolio value ($) and the margin percentage requirement (%) into the Portfolio Margin Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Portfolio Margin.

## Portfolio Margin Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Portfolio Margin.

PM = PV * MPR/100

- Where PM is the Portfolio Margin ($)
- PV is the portfolio value ($)
- MPR is the margin percentage requirement (%)

To calculate the portfolio margin, multiply the portfolio value by the margin requirement.

## How to Calculate Portfolio Margin?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Portfolio Margin.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the portfolio value ($).
- The portfolio value ($) is given as: 40,000.

- Next, determine the margin percentage requirement (%).
- The margin percentage requirement (%) is provided as: 20.

- Finally, calculate the Portfolio Margin using the equation above:

PM = PV * MPR/100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

PM = 40,000 * 20/100 = 8,000 ($)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

portfolio value ($) = 60,000

margin percentage requirement (%) = 30
