The buzz started in the office of the President of Ignite Funding, quickly spreading to the marketing department and around the building, and even to the internet, with the American Association of Private Lending (AAPL) posting the phrase "Revenue Whore".

If you happen to be an investor in the stock market, perhaps it is time to consider diversifying your investment portfolio. While stocks can offer significant potential for returns, they also come with an elevated risk of potential loss.

If you’re simply relying on stocks, bonds, and mutual funds for your investment strategy, then you are missing what could be a pivotal vehicle for the growth of your retirement nest egg. Did you know that you can invest in real estate with a retirement account? With Trust Deeds at Ignite Funding, you can diversify your portfolio from the conventional market AND compound double-digit returns in a qualified account. Trust Deeds have longer hold periods, lower investment minimums, and offer capital preservation, making it an ideal investment to deploy for a long-term retirement strategy.
When determining what Trust Deed investment to invest in, the single most important aspect is the collateral that is backing the loan. The only security an investor has in the event of a default is the real estate itself. Real estate collateral operates in a similar fashion to that of an auto loan. If the auto finance company lends to the consumer and the consumer defaults on the loan, the finance company takes the collateral back. The only true recourse an investor has is the collateral, this is why Ignite Funding is hypersensitive to the current market valuation and future market valuation of real estate.
