Investing in funds & exchange traded funds (ETFs)

When you invest in funds and ETFs you’re investing in a collection of assets (e.g. stocks, bonds, property). Both offer a variety of options, giving you the benefit of diversifying your investment without having to put in hours of research into specific stocks. Investing in funds & ETFs can help to reduce risk in your portfolio and it is also an efficient way to invest in specific themes or regions starting with small amounts of money.

A stock market index where each stock influences the index in proportion to its price per share

Value managers seek to identify companies that are undervalued by the market and are trading at a discount to their intrinsic value.

Emphasis on generating income by investing in companies that offer higher dividend yields than the overall market.

Construct a lower risk portfolio of companies with stable earnings profiles and less volatile share price movements that will provide greater capital preservation during periods of market declines.
