Investment opportunities

Make more informed decisions about your SMSF investments

As an SMSF trustee, effective and timely management of your SMSF investments is key to maximising your retirement wealth, but it can be challenging to keep abreast of dynamic and evolving financial markets. This is why we continually look beyond cash and shares to assess risks and opportunities against the needs of all our SMSF clients. Our global perspective provides an array of investment choices designed to complement existing portfolios and adapt to changing market conditions.

Proactive SMSF investment strategies tailored to you

Key to developing an investment strategy is the confidence you have that your process has been well-considered, and having specialist expertise at your fingertips can add a critical layer of support.

As a local firm with a global outlook, we are committed to helping you make the right financial decisions to achieve your retirement goals. You’ll receive proactive investment advice from your advisor based on your personal preferences and circumstances as well as a regular review of your portfolio to tailor recommendations based on your goals and risk tolerance.

What investment support can you expect?

  • asset allocation – ensuring you have an appropriate distribution of investments in both defensive and growth assets
  • diversification – ensuring you are invested across a range of asset classes that don’t all behave the same way at the same time
  • capital growth – securing assets that are gradually expected to appreciate in value to assist in building wealth
  • income generation – diversifying the source of cash flow in your portfolio to regulate returns to help support your living expenses
  • risk management – actively identifying risks to manage and avoid
  • unique investment opportunities – proactively reviewing markets and keeping you informed of developments and investment opportunities, and helping you access non-traditional assets that may be difficult for retail investors to access on their own or without specialist knowledge.

What are some of the alternative investment opportunities?

Because they behave differently, alternative assets to cash and shares may be able to provide opportunities to diversify, smooth out volatility and potentially enhance returns for SMSF investors.

At Dixon Advisory, we’re excited about helping our clients access a range of different investment opportunities including:

  • renewables – with widespread support for carbon reduction, there is a shift in the way people are thinking about, and investing in alternative energies such as solar power
  • disruptive technologies – technologies such as driverless cars, 3D printing, cloud software, smartphones, new media and artificial intelligence continue to change existing industries and create new markets
  • overseas residential real estate – the Australian residential property market may not always be the best option; viable investment opportunities could be found in overseas residential property markets such as New York (US)
  • Australian commercial real estate – commercial real estate could potentially present higher returns than residential property, as well as potentially deliver substantial capital growth over the long term
  • private equity – smaller early stage private businesses, not yet listed, that are less responsive to global market shifts can be a good source of long-term returns particularly when approached with dividends in mind.
