Shares and investment markets
Find your way to self-directed super in just a few simple steps.
Managing my portfolio and super strategies
Managing your super comes down to how much time and experience you have and how far you are from retirement.
Defensive investments and fixed income
They don't offer the growth potential of other asset classes, but defensive investments are ideal if you want confidence in how much your super fund is worth.
As it says on the box, growth investments should help you build up your super over time.
High touch investments generally require some investment experience, as they involve doing the researching, buying and selling for yourself.
If you're time poor or just beginning your investment journey, low touch investments can help build your super portfolio.
Working out where to invest your money comes down to knowing what stage of life you are at, which is just how far away retirement is.
Now you know whether high touch or low touch investments suit you best, and what stage of life you are at - so it's time to pick investments!
To start building your portfolio it's as simple as working out what type of investments will suit you and what stage of life you are at.
