TeachMeFinance.com - explain debt investment
debt investment -- investment in the financing of property or of some endeavor, in which the investor loaning funds does not own the property or endeavor, nor share in its profits. If property is pledged, or mortgaged, as security for the loan, the investor may claim the property to repay the debt if the borrower defaults on payments. Also see equity investment.
