Why go global with equities?

Tapping into the success of innovative sectors and companies across digital, healthcare and more can power up the growth allocation in your portfolio. While Australia’s equity market can pack a punch for performance, growth in local companies and equity investments can be limited by both the number of opportunities and the types of industries that tend to dominate our economy.

Success in business is no accident

Companies with financial and operating models giving them room to grow, even when market and economic conditions are tough, can deliver compounding returns over time. Finding these companies early can give investors an even greater advantage as their market value and dividends grow. These companies can be located anywhere and that’s why it’s important to look at global equities as a way to access strong returns from the asset class.

A huge universe of opportunity

As a multi-trillion-dollar market, global equities are extremely varied and complex. Investing in this asset class to limit risk and capture growth takes extensive research coming from a team who know what to look for and the right questions to ask.

Potential for strong returns and higher risks

Investing in global equities brings you the opportunity to boost returns from the growth portion of your portfolio. By choosing global equities you can seek exposure to capital growth and dividend returns from some of the world’s most successful companies. But just like any other growth asset, you should accept that an allocation to global equities comes with potential for short-term volatility and loss of capital.

Global equity investments are for investors seeking capital growth; however you must be prepared to accept a high to very high amount of risk. Whether you’re investing in a global equities fund or in direct shares, these options are unlikely to be suitable if you’re seeking capital preservation or have a short investment timeframe.
