What's the best asset of the decade?

The numbers are in - here are the top performing assets over ten and 20 years.

Summary: The ASX/Russell Long-term investing Report has challenged the notion that holding an asset for ten years will let you weather the storms of bad returns - while also pointing out that over the past decade, gearing into Australian shares has actually destroyed capital in the long run.

Key take out: Residential property has delivered the strongest returns over the past 10 and 20 years - but that's no guarantee of future returns.

Key beneficiaries: General investors. Category: Australian economy.
