Managed funds pool the money of many individual investors. This money is then invested by a professional fund manager in different asset classes (e.g. shares, property and bonds) in line with the fund’s stated investment objectives. For some investors, managed funds provide the right amount of control without the time consuming hands-on management required by direct investing. The Commonwealth Bank offers a range of managed funds through Colonial First State’s FirstChoice platform.
Keeping up with constant changes in laws and regulations about tax and superannuation, understanding market movements and keeping track of various investments can be a minefield. Most people just don’t have the time to stay up to date with all these issues, but it’s something financial planners do every day.
Whether you’re just starting out in your career, mid-way through, or retired, a well structured financial plan could help you achieve your financial goals faster. If you already have a financial plan, it’s wise to review it with your financial planner at least once a year. This will ensure your investment strategies remain appropriate to your current needs and that you are on track to meet your goals. Even slight adjustments can make a big difference to your savings over the long term.
