voor verhoudelijke investeringsdoelen
Explanation:
of - doelen van investering gebaseerde/gefunderde/gegronde op verhouding geleend geld en kapitaal

gearing - verhouding geleend geld en kapitaal

financial gearing
Relationship between fixed-interest debt and shareholders' equity used to finance a company. The additional profit made by borrowing at fixed interest and earning a greater return on those funds than the interest payable accrues to the shareholders. A high proportion of fixed-interest funding, known as high gearing, can leave the firm more vulnerable in poorer trading conditions.

equity (business)
A company's assets, less its liabilities, which are the property of the owner or shareholders. Popularly, equities are stocks and shares which do not pay interest at fixed rates but pay dividends based on the company's performance. The value of equities tends to rise over the long term, but in the short term they are a risk investment because prices can fall as well as rise. Equity is also used to refer to the paid value of mortgaged real property, most commonly a house.
