You've spent years paying off your biggest investment. Now it's time to reap the rewards. If you own at least one-third of your home, you are in a perfect position to create greater wealth by using that equity to access other investments. It's called 'gearing' and ANZ's range of equity facilities are a great way to go about it.
Benefits of equity facilities
Equity facilities can turn the equity in your home into a ready source of funds that can be used as a line of credit. You can borrow up to your agreed credit limit without having to make further lending applications and you have easy access to your money whenever you need it. Or, if you prefer, you can access your equity through a set term loan so that the funds are provided to you in one parcel with an agreed repayment structure.
And because the facility is secured against your home, the interest rate is set at very competitive home loan-like rates.
An equity facility such as ANZ Equity Manager allows you to borrow up to 80% of the value of your home for investment purposes without Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI) and up to 90%* with LMI.
While gearing can increase your financial assets faster than through more conventional strategies, it also involves some risk. You should consult your financial adviser and tax adviser to understand any potential risks involved.
