Bad Debt vs. Good Debt: The Argument for Debt Recycling

If you could buy something for $1 and sell it for $2 would you do it?

The answer isn’t yes, the answer is how many $1 can I get my hands on.

A simple concept and it forms the basis of the argument for Debt Recycling.

To put the scenario another way – if you could borrow money at 4% interest and invest that money to generate 10% interest would you do it?

UGC’s investment services have been producing great returns for our clients, with the average return for clients well above 10% annually.

With mortgage interest rates currently at 3-4% the earlier question is not just hypothetical.

Property owners with mortgages less than 80% of the value of their property can look at implementing a process to benefit from this scenario – it’s called Debt Recycling.

Debt Recycling

Debt recycling is an innovative way of investing available equity in a property and any surplus cash to generate returns that can be used to pay off your home loan and create additional wealth.
