We run two model portfolios based on our investment strategy:
International Growth consists mainly of growth stocks listed on the NYSE/Nasdaq, and includes many multinationals, but may include stocks listed elsewhere and at times will include cyclical stocks or ETFs (e.g. gold).
Australian Growth is a far more diverse portfolio, consisting of ASX listed stocks. The portfolio includes stocks held primarily for their strong dividend income streams as well as cyclical stocks held for appreciation through the economic/commodity cycle.
The portfolios have been run for clients since late 2017. Performance has so far been excellent but varies between clients depending on individual selections and entry dates. Hence the need for a model portfolio to provide an objective measure of performance.
