Using Leverage Responsibly to Make Profits

Leverage is when an investor borrows money from a bank or other entity to complete a transaction. It is an important concept according to PR Newswire in any investment. Leverage enhances the risk but also enhances the profit of the investment. For that reason, investors must be very careful with their decision.

For example, if you make an investment in a $100,000 property by using $10,000 of your own money and $90,000 of the bank’s, if the property falls 10% in value then your ownership is worth nothing. On the other hand, it the property increases in value just 10% then you have doubled your money. Good investment advice requires taking a much more conservative approach, yet still using leverage when the situation requires or when the risk is not as high.
