When looking for the best investments in Australia for 2019 there are a number of things you should consider first. We cover this information  4 key points.

In this article, we will give you information and access to the tools which could help in identifying the best investments suitable to the type of investor you are. Remember that any information here is general advice.

But as with any financial product, there are financial risks you must take into account, industry jargon and terminology you need to know and understand.

Being an informed investor will help you on your journey so you can identify the best investments. Let’s jump straight into explaining the key things you may consider in identifying the best investment that is suited to your needs.

1. What is my Risk Profile?

Knowledge and education is the key for you to identify the best investments.
2. Assest Allocation

Understand the importance of asset allocation and diversification.

Don't put all of your eggs in one basket.

Your asset allocation should be based on your risk profile. The mix of assets in your portfolio and the percentage allocation should vary based on your investment profile. 

Retail Investors who use the services of a financial advisor will be issued with a statement of advice outline their risk profile and investment allocation.

So the question is what is the right allocation for you? 

  • Property
  • Shares
  • Alternative Investments
  • Managed Funds
  • Bonds
  • Fixed Interested

Now if you are looking for investments which are targeting in excess of 20%p.a these are generally aggressive investments.

When looking for the best investment you may be looking for the best return and generally, the best return may come with more risk. So when chasing an alpha return the best investment return has more risk so how much of your investment portfolio should you allocate to these types of investments.

We generally say that you should not have any more than 5-10% of your net assets in these types of investment depending on your risk profile and the type of asset.


3. Ratio's as a tool to compare suitable investments.

Ratios are a useful tool in comparing investments so you can work out the best investment and risks.

4. Security and Transparency

It's now more important than ever for investments to have security and transparency

Use an external custodian so your funds are in a segregated client trust account

  • 1. Only deal with ASIC Regulated and Licensed providers

A lot of people have been caught out in new Initial coin offerings (ICO's) and other types of investments when looking for the best investment return. Do your homework and make sure that the investment company you are dealing with is ASIC Licensed.

  • 2. External Custodians holding your funds

The benefit of using an external custodian to hold your funds mean that the Investment Manager does not have access to your funds for deposits or withdrawals and the funds are held in a segregated client trust account, make sure it's with an Australian Bank. You may have heard of some investment companies or ponsi's investments that have been found out by ASIC using the funds for their own benefit. So the point here is to be careful of who holds your money.
