Wondering what this is going to be all about?

 

Well, glad you asked and here is what we will be talking about.

 

This is NOT going to be one of those typical news sites on business and finance topis as there are already thousands of those once out there. It’s not that we don’t like them (well some of them) but it’s more that we think they are all pretty boring. They all talk about the exact same thing over and over again.

 

Our goal here with IT Finance is not to curate the news that are already out there and everyone is talking about it anyway. We are aiming to only present you with the finance and business news and articles that we find really interesting and that included particular articles from smaller, less popular websites that are just “different” and offer outstanding value.

 

Ok, so now you know what to expect from us in the future…. let’s start with the first gem we found recently. It’s an article from Baggetta & Co in Perth (Western Australia) and it’s titled “Common mistakes made when buying property in your SMSF“.

 

Enjoy the read and check back soon…

What Credit Score Do You Need To Get A Credit Card?

July 30th, 2013 by admin

Many people wonder what credit score is and why is it important when applying for loans. Actually, credit score ratings matter greatly: if your score is low, this means you are a high risk to lenders. Most lenders turn down borrowers who have a very low credit score. If you are given a loan with a low score, you will pay for it with a very high interest rate.

Credit score ratings are a numerological representation of your ability to use credit wisely. In short, when you borrow money, use a credit card, apply for a loan, or make payments on those debts, you are creating a credit history.

In an article posted by Abby Hayes at DOUGHROLLER, Abby discussed some important pointers on how you can get a credit. She specifically focused on what credit score should you have in order for you to get a credit card that fits your financial status and needs.

A stock represents a share in any corporation. It is bought and sold on an exchange. Your claim on a company’s assets and earnings and assure you of voting rights is represented by stock certificates. Companies issue stock as a way to raise capital without guaranteeing payments to creditors and interest rates.

Owning stock brings lesser stress; you don’t have to handle the day to day management of a company. However, it does give you a voice in the elected board of directors, which should protect your interests. Buying and selling stocks can be utilised with the help of an expert and experienced broker; or you can choose to do it on your own.
