Investing is an important way of building a secure financial future. But it is not only about taking on risk to see returns. If you're still young, time will be a great ally. If you're older with a partner or a family, the way you structure investments may significantly increase their value. And as you accumulate assets, they can also help springboard you to greater wealth.
In discussing your options, your financial planner might cover some of the following strategies:
- Using time to your advantage with compound returns
- Enabling growth and helping minimise risk through a diversified spread of investments
- Structuring investments according to your family situation to be more tax efficient
- Managing assets and using them to build greater wealth.
