Investing is an effective way to get your money working for you, to build and protect your wealth rather than sitting stagnant. Many Australians invest in two key asset types – term deposits and Australian shares. Term deposits provide income and security, but with no capital growth. With the Australian market making up only 1.7% of global equity markets, there is a world of opportunity for Australians to invest in other areas.

As the old saying goes, don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Diversification is the concept of spreading investments to help reduce the risk and provide more stable returns for your portfolio in the long run.

In this webinar, BDO Financial Adviser Kelly Kennedy and BDO Wealth Adviser Oliver Straker will look at:

  • Reasons why we invest
  • The risk and reward relationship
  • Types of investments available
  • Various asset classes
  • Benefits of diversification

With property prices ever increasing it's no surprise that homeownership rates for younger people are falling.

It’s common for people to want to help their family members enter the property market, especially their adult children.

One of the ways to do this is by transferring a property that you already own to the family member or friend, either as a gift or by selling it to them at a discounted price.
