Line of credit is a credit arrangement in which a financial institution agrees to lend money to a borrower up to a specified limit. The borrower can draw down on the line of credit at any time, as long as he or she does not exceed the maximum set in the agreement and meets all other covenants of the agreement.
A line of credit works in a similar fashion a credit card. The borrower only pays interest on the amount drawn, not the total limit, and may then pay off all or part of the balance and continues to pay interest only on the amount outstanding. For example, if the borrower drew down $10,000 during the first month and the line of credit carried an interest rate of 4.0%, then the borrower would owe $33.33 in interest for the month (calculated by multiplying the $10,000 balance by the 4.0% interest rate divided by 12 months). If in the second month the investor repaid $4,000, leaving an outstanding balance of $6,000, then that monthly payment would be $20.00 ($6,000 balance times 4.0% interest rate divided by 12 months).

Investing in alternative assets involves higher risks than traditional investments and is suitable only for sophisticated investors. Alternative investments are often sold by prospectus that discloses all risks, fees, and expenses. They are not tax efficient and an investor should consult with his/her tax advisor prior to investing. Alternative investments have higher fees than traditional investments and they may also be highly leveraged and engage in speculative investment techniques, which can magnify the potential for investment loss or gain and should not be deemed a complete investment program. The value of the investment may fall as well as rise and investors may get back less than they invested.
