Hi, I have invested in shares but am keen to begin investing in a managed fund. I am a small investor but would still like any advice available. I currently have about 10k in a variety of blue chip shares. I wanted to use that money as collatoral and obtain a margin loan ratio 50-50and enter into a managed fund - growth - multi sector. I was looking at Zurich Investment Management Limited Entry price = $0.89 Minimum Initial Investment: $1,000.00 Asset Allocation 17% Aust fixed interest, 35%Aust shares, 8.5% cash, 5% International fix int, 26.17 % international shares, 8% property (approx). I am interested in investing over the long term but want to contribute say $2000 now and then a set amount each month. Matching this contribution with money from a margin loan. I thought this might be a good idea while share prices are low and I can claim the interest costs as a tax deduction. Currently earning 70k per year and have nothing to claim. Any advice would be appreciated.
