FE Investments is a relatively small non-bank deposit taking finance company with $54.3 million in retail investments.

The majority of the company’s 617 investors are individuals, rather than trusts and other entities. Eighty-four percent of its investors are based in New Zealand.

The company made the announcement on its website this afternoon.

Earnest Money Definition

What Is Earnest Money?

Earnest money is a deposit made to a seller that represents a buyer’s good faith to buy a home. The money gives the buyer extra time to get financing and conduct the title search, property appraisal, and inspections before closing. In many ways, earnest money can be considered a deposit on a home, an escrow deposit, or good faith money.

Understanding Earnest Money

In most cases, earnest money is delivered when the sales contract or purchase agreement is signed, but it can also be attached to the offer. Once deposited, the funds are typically held in an escrow account until closing, at which time the deposit is applied to the buyer’s down payment and closing costs.

  • A contract is written up during the exchange of the earnest money

Walmart MoneyCard – –

Banking on the Walmart MoneyCard

The Walmart MoneyCard is a reloadable prepaid card that works just like a check card or debit card. It’s so easy to get and use the account the same way you use a checking account, plus it has some useful extra benefits. One really exciting benefit it has over a regular bank’s check card is you earn cash back on any money you spend at Walmart.

Here’s how that works: At the end of every year you can get up to $75 in cash back because you earn 3 percent for everything you buy from, 2 percent for any money you spend at Murphy USA and Walmart fuel stations, and 1 percent on anything you buy in Walmart stores. So it’s like winning twice when you use the Walmart MoneyCard thanks to earning money while you take advantage of Walmart’s Every Day Low Prices.
