Why are more investors choosing direct lending?

With interest rates at an all-time low and reasonable investment returns proving elusive, wealth preservation can be very challenging with.

  • Stock market volatility
  • Decreasing yields on "go-to" investment products
  • The threat of increasing inflation
  • Savings accounts offering negligible returns

Direct lending offers an attractive alternative, delivering stable returns generally around 6 to 8%+ p.a. For these reasons, it’s an increasingly popular option for investors looking to widen their investment choices and potentially achieve attractive risk adjusted returns with lower volatility.
