Types of investments

There are many different types of investments:

  • Cash
  • Fixed interest
  • Alternative strategies
  • Real Estate Investment Trusts
  • Direct Property
  • Shares.


There are also different ways you can access them directly, through a managed fund, through your super or SMSF.

There are potential risks associated with each asset class but with careful asset allocation, suited to your needs, you can tailor a mix of different levels of return, liquidity and volatility into your portfolio.
