What are some examples of debt investment?
There are a wide variety of different debt investment options available to investors. Usually they are purchased in bulk by firms from financial providers who are essentially looking for someone else to administrate the debt on their behalf. Some of the more common options include car loans, mortgages, student loans and medical debt. Some countries also allow tax debt to be invested in this way.
However, at Fortius, we focus primarily on real estate-related debt. This is because it is concentrated on a physical asset (i.e. the building or buildings) which is likely to appreciate in value and/or generate underlying rental income. We see real estate debt investment as a way to generate returns to investors without unwarranted speculation in more volatile markets.
Are debt investments classed as assets in the same way as other investments?
What sort of risk does debt investment have?
Debt investment is generally considered to be low-risk. Real estate debt investment in particular is tied to physical assets, usually has a short-duration loan term and strong risk mitigation strategies, which adds greater security. As a result, it typically offers lower returns than other types of investments (such as stocks), but it is also typically more reliable and less volatile. In your wider portfolio, it can help provide stability while more risk is taken with other types of investment.
