Direct Investment:

Investment by thrift institutions directly in the equity of such ventures as real estate development, and business firms as opposed to thrifts' traditional debt investment. With direct investment, a thrift institution actually owns all or a portion of a venture, rather than simply lending money to finance the venture. Direct investments can be more profitable -- and more risky -- than debt investments.
