Direct investment

Direct investment Definition

Investment by thrift institutions directly in the equity of such ventures as real estate development, and business firms as opposed to thrifts' traditional debt investment. With direct investment, a thrift institution actually owns all or a portion of a venture, rather than simply lending money to finance the venture. Direct investments can be more profitable -- and more risky -- than debt investments.
