Either way, our low admin fees, competitive returns and online support will make your investment experience a rewarding one.
When the news is filled with headlines about market movements, it’s normal to feel a bit anxious. Here are three things to keep in mind the next time sharemarkets aren't behaving the way you'd like them to.
Why fixed interest falls in value when interest rates rise
It may seem odd that rising interest rates would cause negative returns for fixed interest investments such as bonds. We explain why these types of investments can fall in value and what other options are available for you.
It’s natural to feel nervous when markets fall. But history tells us that markets trend upwards in the long run – and switching investment options at the wrong time can have a negative impact on your overall long-term investment return.
