Hybrids are complex investment instruments. You just need to look at a 150-page prospectus for one to see this.

Introducing InvestSMART's Hybrid Income Portfolio

The advantage of InvestSMART's Hybrid Income Portfolio is our that the investment team at InvestSMART have hand-picked a collection for you to form a portfolio with the aim of providing investors with above market yield and lower volatility. 

Hybrids are not without their risks. Our experts select the ones to hold, what price to hold them at and which ones to avoid to build a diversified portfolio. With most hybrids starting at $100 per share, investors may find diversification hard to come by while still holding a meaningful parcel.

Our portfolio of 10 – 20 hybrids starts at a minimum investment of $25,000 and gives you instant diversification and lowers risk by spreading your funds across a number of hybrids and not just one or two.
