Taking the scenic route
Call out to Illawarra region and Southern Highlands members. We are holding our inaugural regional roadshows next week and look forward to meeting you. If it proves successful, other regional centres will be forever thankful.
People of the Illawarra region and Southern Highlands your participation is needed. Our CEO, Ron Hodge, Senior Analyst Alex Hughes and myself will be bringing the InvestSMART Forum: Actionable Ideas for Diversification to three locations in the area before moving on to Canberra and the east coast capital cities.
We are trialling the roadshows in regional areas and if we get a good turnout we will continue to hold them and go further afield.
For those looking to attend our regional presentations next week, we will be talking about diversification across and within different asset classes. It is important to us that we present actionable ideas, hence the name. There is no use us presenting for two hours and giving you, a whole lot of information and you saying, now what?
If you come along you will hear Senior Analyst Alex Hughes make a case for diversifying away from the usual “blue chip” stocks and investing in under researched, lesser known small cap stocks. Alex will also walk through his stock selection process that has proven to be fruitful in the short life of the InvestSMART Small Companies Fund.
InvestSMART CEO and founder Ron Hodge will walk through his five-step plan to achieving your financial goals, be it building a future nest egg or an income stream in retirement. Ron will also discuss the future vision of the InvestSMART service.
Finally, I will be talking about investing in international equities. This is an area I know a lot of self-directed investors struggle with for one reason or another. I’ll address those reasons and provide some practical ideas on how you can increase your international exposure or improve it.
Investors of South Coast NSW come on out and say hello. We would love to meet you all and if it proves to be successful, other regional centres will be forever thankful.
