It’s a new year and ‘financial commentators’ are falling over themselves to present the most bearish picture of global markets. Mind you, it’s not like we have not seen such foreboding in the markets at regular intervals…and we take it all with a pinch of salt.
At Eureka Report we figured out long ago how to make money independent of the broader trends in listed markets. After a very strong performance in 2015, we are convinced that our formula of quality stock picking, income ideas and general wealth management advice will work handsomely again in 2016.
We also remain keen on you having an allocation to offshore markets in your investment portfolio. Judging from subscriber correspondence it's clear Australian investors want overseas allocation but they also find the logistics and risks of direct stock investment very challenging. We completely understand these concerns so you will see in 2016 our focus will not be on directly recommending overseas stocks rather we will focus on where you can 'get into' overseas markets through the best Australian based managed funds, Listed Investment Companies and stocks.
We'll begin this initiative with a series that will start on Wednesday, January 20 from our managed funds expert Kirstie Spicer on the top rated international investment funds open to all retail investors.
From today we return to our regular publishing schedule on Eureka Report with Monday ‘investment’ editions, Wednesday ‘wealth management’ editions and the Saturday morning emails. Take note that from this Saturday January 16 Robert Gottliebsen will stand in for our editor in chief Alan Kohler who is taking some long-service leave. Alan will be back on deck from March 15.
Separately, our busy calendar of interviews, portfolio updates and webcasts will also return from next week – I’ll give all the details in next Monday’s edition. Until then enjoy today’s edition which is aimed at getting you, your DIY fund and your investment portfolio ready for the year ahead.
