Personal Loans For Retail Investments: 4 Things To Know

Today, more people are considering investing their hard-earn money in various financial instruments, including bonds, mutual funds, stocks, among others. Investing in such securities is preferred due to their liquidity and ability to hedge against inflation. And this has led to a rise in retail investments.

What Is A Retail Investment?

Essentially, a retail investor is a non-professional investor or participant who conducts smaller trades and investments compared to institutional investors who are considered big players in the market. Retail investors generally use traditional or online brokerage firms for their transactions.

While it can be a promising venture, some people lack enough capital to finance their investments. As such, if you fall under this class, you can consider applying for a personal loan to fund your investments.
This article walks you through things you need to know before applying for personal loans for your investment.

An Overview Of A Personal Loan

A personal loan is also referred to as a consumer loan. It’s the money you can borrow from any financial lending institution to fund personal needs. These could be purchasing furniture, paying your child’s school fee, buying a home, and more. But aside from such purposes, you can also take a personal loan to finance your desired retail investment, as you’re not restricted on how to utilize the borrowed funds unless it’s specified in your contract.

A personal loan has three main components- a promissory note, principal amount, and the interest rate. A promissory note is a legally binding document that explains all the loan details. The principal is the sum of money you borrowed or the initial size of the personal loan. Interest is the price or cost you pay for the loan. This is the amount you pay above the principal amount.

Any money borrowed is required to be repaid in equal monthly installments or depending on the established terms. Each installment will comprise a portion of the principal amount and interest.

Personal Loans And Retail Investments
When applying for a personal loan, here are some essential points you have to keep in mind:

1. Credit Score Matters

A credit score is one of the most important things most lenders will check before processing your loan. Typically, this ranges between 300 and 850.

A person with a rating of 850 is said to be in good standing. Such an individual is likely to qualify for big personal loans from various lending institutions. On the other hand, if your credit score is close to 300, you may have difficulty securing a personal loan.

But the good news is that you can seek personal loans for bad credit to finance your retail investment. Some institutions won’t consider your credit score and history before approving your loan application. Therefore, you can borrow money for your project whether you’ve got a good or poor credit score.

2. You Might Be Asked To Provide Collateral

Depending on the terms and contract you agreed upon, some financial institutions or lenders may require you to provide collateral. In general, it refers to any asset you can pledge to act as a security for the borrowed money. The lender has the option to seize and dispose of such assets to recover their money, should you fail on timely paying the loan.

There are many things you can consider as collateral for a personal loan. These include a title deed of your land, a homeownership document, a logbook of your motor vehicle, etc.

3. Lenders May Have Different Interest Rates

Another thing you need to keep in mind when applying for a personal loan is that lenders may charge different fees and interest rates for their loans. For instance, some have high while others have low-interest rates.

Initially, lending institutions such as commercial banks have were regulated. However, today, there are online financial platforms that aren’t regulated. That’s why their interest rates significantly differ. For that reason, it’d be a good idea to find a personal loan from a financial institution with favorable interest charges.

4. You Might Be Required To Pay Origination Fee
Lastly, most financial lending institutions may require investors to pay an origination fee. This is the money you pay to cover the loan processing process. While the fee varies from one company to the other, however, it’s usually a certain percentage of your total loan.

Takeaway

If you want to launch a retail investment but don’t have capital, you can consider applying for a personal loan. But sometimes, applying for a personal loan isn’t always easy, especially if you haven’t been into such a process in the past. But with the correct information, you can streamline the process and fund your retail investment with ease.
