If you feel like you can make a higher % return off of the money that you invest than the interest rate on your liabilities, it would be a good idea.

Use a weighted average to calculate your interest rate. I think that the average annual return on the S&P is 11-12%. A lot of people use that number as a benchmark.

If you want to have a discussion, send me a message with your email.

cheers,
