There is a lot of confusion as to what Negative Gearing actually is, how it works, who benefits and why.

We help you to better understand the concept of Negative Gearing so that you can make an informed decision.

Negative gearing occurs when an investor borrows funds to acquire any assets but the return on the investment fails to exceed the cost of borrowings. It is a leveraged form of investment to help general people be an active part of the growing real estate industry.
