ETFs are traded on the stock exchange (ASX) and typically offer broad exposure to various asset classes such as the Australian and international share markets, and global fixed income securities. In the case of the Vanguard Diversified ETFs, investors gain exposure to a diversified portfolio of securities covering multiple asset classes.
It’s your decision. You get to choose what’s right for you.
Typically, investors choose one risk profile (Conservative, Balanced, Growth or High Growth) that suits their investment goals and needs. However, some investors may have different objectives and/or times frames for portions of their portfolio and may choose multiple options. Other investors may choose to change options over time if their risk profile changes.
If you are unsure which portfolio, or mix, is right for you, you should consult a licensed financial adviser for professional guidance.
