DelhiDesk Alternative investments, previously only available to high net worth individuals, are now accessible to retail investors through new platforms offering options such as asset leasing, invoice discounting, peer-to-peer lending, and fractional real estate. Asset leasing involves individuals or a group of investors funding a lease transaction and receiving fixed monthly payments. Platforms such as GripInvest, LeafRound, Jiraaf, and Pyse offer different leasing structures, and investors can earn returns of up to 20%. However, the minimum ticket size is low, starting at INR 3,000, and the leasing structure varies. Investors should be aware of the risks, including the potential for default in lease payments by the lessee and the platform’s fee of up to 2%.
