Previously General Electric Capital Corporation offered term note investments only through financial advisors. Now, with the launch of GE Capital Select term notes, you can invest directly in GE Capital and avoid the usual sales fee or commissions. Investors who do so should be comfortable managing investments without the assistance of a financial advisor.
GE Capital Select term notes are a direct investment in the unsecured debt of General Electric Capital Corporation that are held for a fixed period of time – up to 10 years. Consider this investment only if you are comfortable investing directly in the corporate debt of GE Capital and are prepared to hold the note until maturity.
You can invest a minimum of $1,000 up to a maximum of $5,000,000. You must, however, limit your total investment in GE Capital Select term notes to $5,000,000. When a note matures, we will mail you a check for the principal balance of such note, plus any accrued and unpaid interest.
You can choose whether to have interest paid to you monthly or at maturity. If you mail in a check, or are funding your investment from a current GE Interest Plus investment that does not have a bank account linked to it, your interest would be paid to you at maturity. (You can change this to monthly interest payouts after your investment is established.)
