EM Portfolio: Building our core portfolio

In by EquityMatesLeave a Comment

In today’s episode we continue building our renewed hypothetical portfolio. We are taking a ‘core and satellite’ approach to this portfolio, so we spend this episode discussing the strategy for the core portfolio. We then select some specific ETFs that will form the basis of our core portfolio.

In this episode you will learn:

  • The principles of a ‘core and satellite’ portfolio
  • Our investing philosophy for our core portfolio
  • The rules we will be applying for this portfolio
  • How we are thinking about portfolio construction and rebalancing
  • Some key asset classes that can be included in a core portfolio
  • Examples of core portfolios
  • The first six ETF’s we will be holding in our core portfolio

When listening to this episode it is important to remember that nothing discussed forms specific investment advice or an offer to buy, hold or sell individual securities. We are not investment advisors and are not aware of your personal financial circumstances or goals. The discussions are general in nature and are had for the purposes of financial education. Before investing please ensure you do your own research, reach the PDS available and speak to a financial advisor if you have any questions.
