Asset Class Returns: The last 36 years…
- Posted by Dejan Pekic BCom DipFP CFP GAICD
Morning all and if we have not yet spoken, welcome to 2017.
The results for the year ending 31 December 2016 are in and again growth assets (defined as property and shares) have taken out the top two spots for the calendar year.
Australian shares delivered a double digit return but once again the best performance for calendar year 2016 was property (meaning Australian listed property, see attached).
Please remember that these figures do not show the opportunity for a client to buy low and add to their investment holding when an asset class is out of favour which in turn will accelerate the rate of return well above the index performance.
WARNING, past performance is no guarantee of future performance and these index return figures do not reflect the ability of top professional investment management teams to outperform their respective index/benchmark. Most importantly, the above does not constitute Personal Advice.
