Australian equities

We see Australian equities as a key component of many investors’ portfolios. Over the longer term (five to seven years) we believe Australian equities may generally provide investors with higher returns than other asset classes such as cash or fixed income.

In addition to the potential for capital growth, many Australian equities generate income in the form of dividends. They may also offer investors tax advantages through franking credits. This can reduce your clients’ overall taxable income depending on their individual situation, as well as discounts on any capital gains if they are held for more than 12 months.

  • Flexibility to target capital growth, income or a combination
  • Tax advantages including franking credits
  • Liquidity
  • Significant opportunities for active managers to add value

Risks

Risks specific to investments in Australian equities may include share market and company risks, risks associated with the use of short selling and derivatives, investment management and style, portfolio concentration and liquidity risks. Please refer to the relevant fund’s Product Disclosure Statement for more information.
