Gearing simply means investing with borrowed money, allowing you to acquire assets other than those you would otherwise be able to own.  This can be an effective way of building wealth over the longer term.

Even if you don't own your home, you can still invest in your financial future through a well-managed gearing strategy.  Using the equity in your home, for example is a common strategy for investing in other assets such as shares or managed funds.

You’ve probably heard that gearing can reduce tax.  It also allows you to hold assets that have the potential to grow in value over time.  Remember, though, that while gearing can magnify your gains, it can also magnify your losses.  As a result, it’s not for everyone.
