Investments - Hello Wealth

Investments

While most assume investing is for the rich, Hello Wealth advisers help you perfect your cashflow foundations and incorporate appropriate investments for each of your life stages and milestones.

 

This personalised structure allows for a savings strategy that suits your comfort level while also offering risk protection, income tax savings and help with debt reduction.

 

In addition you can have peace of mind knowing an investment committee with over seventy successful years’ experience monitors your funds around the clock for the best outcome in all market environments.

 

Investors typically experience three or four of major market events in their lifetime with October 1987 and the global financial crisis of October 2008 already seared into the memories of our generation.

Another major challenge for investors in achieving their long-term goals is having the discipline to stay the course.

 

As investors we are wired to be emotional beings craving certainty and confidence in our decisions so the challenges today, in the face of escalating bad news across all social and media platforms, are both real and confronting.

 

How can you turn down the crescendo of short-term market noise?
A long-term Hello Wealth financial plan tailored to your individual risk tolerance level and financial goals is a truly valuable tool.

The CARE Investment Philosophy

 

Every investment decision we make is driven by our CARE philosophy: a sophisticated and robust process that helps you make smart decisions.

Your investments will be selected according to your individual needs, risk profile and financial goals, with daily portfolio management by our qualified and experienced investment committee. We’ll also take care of all your administrative needs and work in consultation with your accountant, lawyer and other advisers, to reduce costs and maximise tax advantages for you and your family.

Our CARE philosophy is made up of four key components, which combine to form the foundation of your investment portfolio and the first step on your pathway to wealth:

1

Core Investments

 

These investments are carefully selected by our team to match your risk profile. They’ll usually include a combination of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and fixed interest funds, to help you gain exposure to the market.

2

Active Investments

 

We’ll incorporate a tactical blend of Australian and global shares, emerging markets, global small companies and gold in your portfolio. Your active investments are designed to smooth out the volatility of individual sectors and provide you with a nice, consistent overall return.

3

Reserves

 

Your portfolio will include up to four years of cash reserves, to provide a buffer against any adverse market conditions that can last up to 10 years. This offers peace of mind and helps you stay focused on your long-term goals.

4

Enhanced Returns

 

A direct share portfolio made up of Australian blue-chip companies adds value to your portfolio and can enhance your returns over time.
