|Markets are far from calm at the moment!
Volatility can mean both risk and opportunity whether you are a financial institution managing billions of investors’ money, a corporate looking to maximise profits or an individual looking to the future. Discovering the risks, analysing them as accurately as possible and then proactively managing those risks are key to the success of your investment plan.
|Credit (& mortgage) markets are gradually rebuilding themselves
For active investors in the property / real-estate market and sophisticated investors that utilise credit default swaps, CDOS or CLOs, there are reasons to believe that credit finance is gradually becoming more readily available.
For example, in the retail, residential, market, there are lenders that are now willing to provide 100% mortgages if you don’t have a deposit; as long as you have the support of a Guarantor such as a friend or relative. In the Buy-to-Let market, a 10% investment can help you build your portfolio.
