How To Actually Use Other People's Money For Your Investments
Play • 11 min

Many potential investors hear much about how they can use other people's capital in order to get started, but where do you start? In this week's show, Simon talks you through the ways in which you can approach and attain money from others.


  • Traditional lenders all like to ensure that you some skin in the game - that you have something at stake in the investment.
  • Obtaining a letter from your source of money may solve the issues that lenders might have. They much prefer it when the money is yours to lose, and not some borrowed finance.
  • The deal you want to be involved in must have enough potential profits, so that you can give a good return to your investor, plus a healthy return for yourself.
  • You may have money somewhere in your life, that can be drawn upon. These hidden assets are a wonderful resource and can get you started immediately.
