Lenders that extend credit as permitted by the Board's margin requirements are sometimes required to fill out purpose statements to document the purpose of their loans secured by margin stock. The FR T-4 purpose statement is used for extensions of credit by brokers and dealers, the FR G-3 for extensions of credit by other nonbank lenders, and the FR U-1 for extensions of credit by banks. The borrower lists the amount and purpose of the loan, and the lender lists the collateral for the loan.
