Ten things you must do in 2016

Your investing guide for the year ahead.

Summary: 2016 is the year to reevaluate the cost of dividends – as the banks and miners face margin pressure, investors should be looking for yields from sustainable sources. Keep in mind that cash may get better as US interest rates rise. Consider the rise of social impact investing that aims to do good rather than “avoiding bad” investments.

Key take out: Know the strengths and weaknesses of popular asset types: take time to understand small cap stocks in 2016 but be aware of the changing tempo of this space, and view ETFs as a useful but far from perfect investment type.
