Ok, i posted something here in October last year giving an introduction and such and this is my second post, 6 months on... Now i am 23 years old (24 in October) and from my post in October last year, nothing has changed (due to the economy and me being scared) but now i really want to get in there and have had a look at different strategies i could take. I just moved into my new home with my wife so there were a lot of expenses there (first home so needed loads of furniture etc) which means i don't think i have enough to buy a property, especially in these times with banks needing larger deposits. I was thinking of using the Mentor Portfolio Services (Mentor Superannuation and Investment Solutions - Guiding your Financial Future) as a platform and investing through there. The investments i am thinking of choosing are: Ventura High Growth 100 | 70% AllStar IAM Australian Shares | 15% Colonial Wholesale Firststate Propery Securities | 10% Walter Scott Global Equities Fund | 5% I am looking at investing $1000 with a $600/mth regular investment plan at the moment. This will be a long term sort of thing until i can save enough to maybe purchase some property (hopefully one day commercial!) What other strategies would anyone suggest that would fit my "HIGH GROWTH" risk profile? I have organised a pretty strict budget that i am sticking to but i have around $600 a month that i am happy to disperse aggressively but i could probably raise that to maybe $1200 if i wanted to be even more "aggressive". Any thoughts on the strategy for the moment? Any changes YOU would make?
