Investors who don't understand the peculiarities of buying and selling ETFs will miss out on some of their benefits. Exchange-traded funds are gaining traction with retail investors in Australia for some very good reasons: they offer instant diversification, the fees are low and international markets can be bought without any fuss.
InvestSMART has recently reviewed their Diversified Portfolios and projected returns for the different asset classes. The take-away? Our portfolios remain well diversified and we have decided not to change any weightings across the various asset classes. Australian equities, are currently a little bit kinky or volatile, but at these prices, should provide a decent long term returns with a few meaningful bumps along the way. Bond investors shouldn't expect too much.
Some ETFs are better than others, and it pays to know the market before you pick the product. Everyone should be open to a bit of intellectual debate. When it comes to investing, you have to be willing to listen to other people's opinions. You don't have to buy what they're saying, and sometimes it's good to "block out the noise", but qualified views are always worth hearing.
