Equity & Debt

Equity and debt are two fundamental forms of financing used by businesses to raise capital. Here’s a description of equity and debt:

Equity Investments:

  • Equity: Equity represents ownership in a company and represents the residual interest in the company’s assets after deducting liabilities. 
  • Debt: Debt financing involves borrowing funds from lenders or creditors with the promise of repayment over a specified period, typically with interest.

Debt Investments:

Debt investments involve lending money to a borrower (individual, company, or government) in exchange for regular interest payments and the return of the principal amount at maturityInvestment Vehicles: 

  • Returns: Debt investments provide returns in the form of periodic interest payments (coupon payments) and the return of the principal amount at maturity.
  • Risk and Stability: Debt investments are generally considered less risky and more stable compared to equity investments. The borrower’s obligation to repay the debt provides a level of security to investors.
