150 Types of Unusual Investments – The List

77. Loan Forgiveness – this is an investment opportunity that is unique to people that don’t necessarily have to have a loan to pay for college, but take one out anyway because they know a program exists to forgive the loan in the future.

The idea is to invest the money that would have been spent on college and invest it in something that provides a higher return than the interest cost of the debt.

At some point in the future, the loan is forgiven, so you can keep the money you set aside for college plus whatever return that money generated.

There are programs available for specific professions like teachers or nurses that offer loan forgiveness if you work in a certain area for a certain number of years.
