Smart investors don’t rely on good luck, they plan, research and understand their investment
strategies and how they fit with their financial goals.
If you’re planning to invest, it’s important to have a clear understanding of your financial goals, and
how your investment strategy will help make these goals become a reality. The first step is to
determine what you want to accomplish with your money and when you want to achieve it. You also
need to consider your appetite for risk. Investments that carry more risk are generally suited to a
long-term investment horizon as they can be susceptible to periods of volatility over the short term.
On the other hand, low-risk investments could make reaching your goals harder as they typically
offer lower returns.
Spreading your money across different asset classes (ie: cash, fixed interest, property and shares),
is a good way to reduce risk. Diversification is an essential strategy that can leave your overall
investments less exposed should one shareholding or sector perform poorly. It’s also wise to
diversify within asset classes. For example, a diversified share portfolio may hold shares across a
number of different sectors such as healthcare, banking, resources, and technology, while a
diversified investment property portfolio could hold residential, commercial and/or retail property.
