Speaker: Ian Irvine, Head of Customer and Business Development, ASX
The year ahead: Opportunities for investors
The start of 2016 has presented itself as a very interesting time for many investors, with the first few weeks of the year being credited as one of, if not the worst starts to a calendar year. Much of the uncertainty seen towards the end of 2015 has continued; being reflected in market volatility globally and within Australia.
SMSFs: What's changed, what's about to change and what's still to come?
Thought all self-managed super fund news updates were the same? Think again. Fasten your seat belts; this rapid fire session will not only bring you up-to-date with the latest legislative developments effecting self-managed super funds but it will also cover what law changes are likely in 2016. Whether you have a self-managed super fund, or are considering establishing one, this session will explain all you need to know from a legislation update perspective. Presented by a leading self-managed super fund technical expert, this session assists self-managed super fund trustees with their trustee responsibilities by helping them stay abreast of legislative change.
Weatherproof your portfolio: Can you have too much of a good thing?
Home bias is a natural tendency for investors. Allocating a proportionally high level of their portfolio to their domestic share market – one they know and understand – is easy to appreciate. Yet, what effect can too much of a good thing have on your overall portfolio?
ASX has partnered with the Macquarie Graduate School of Management (MGSM) and Financial Express (FE) to conduct research into how incorporating new asset classes into a share portfolio can help mitigate risk. In this session, Ian will outline the research findings and show where mFund can fit in the context of other investment structures.
|12.00–12.15||As easy as buying shares
In this session, we have invited new partner nabtrade, part of the nab Group, to demonstrate how simple integrating mFunds into your ASX portfolio can be.
