Scan the historic graph below to see how much the retiree living off their nest egg has been disadvantaged by low interest rates in the last decade; indeed, how much more disadvantaged investors have become November 2011.

Credit Connect Capital likes to support self directed investors by providing term investments that yield between 7.00% p.a and 9.50% p.a. Below we discuss an alternative way for investors to diversify, generate income, and exercise choice.
