Despite all the uncertainty of global geopolitical events over recent times, Australian equities have produced great returns over the past 12 months with the benchmark ASX200 Accumulation Index increasing by 16.5%. If you think that is impressive, how would you feel if your Australian share portfolio had produced an overall return of 25% to 35%. If you like to see some of the stocks that produced those returns, have a look at our top recommendations on our website at www.morganwealth.com.au.
Great returns were also there for the taking in the floating rate listed capital notes and preference shares with our selected portfolio producing a total return of around 9.5% over the same 12 month period. Yes, we know the theoretical risks of those types of securities are greater than cash and term deposits, but we think that providing the underlying companies are financially sound and have a high degree of earnings certainty, that is a risk worth taking.
