ASX Investor Day 2019 presentation by Sharesight
Sharesight CEO Doug Morris shared our latest investing insights to investors attending the ASX Investor Day 2019 series of events in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney this month. Doug’s presentation made the case on the importance of portfolio tracking and the common traps investors encounter in getting the full picture of their investment performance.
Importance of portfolio tracking
Kicking off the presentation, Doug shared the latest Sharesight data on the performance of Sharesight SMSF portfolios vs a number of superannuation and other funds - including the contributions of both dividend and capital growth on the total annualised return.
The five lessons for investors
Investors can learn from the mistakes of those who came before them. Doug broke down five key lessons investors need to learn and be mindful of when investing to avoid falling into common traps.
Tracking your performance
Tracking your performance on an annualised basis gives you an apples to apples comparison when looking at the relative performance of your investments. The majority of brokers do not report annualised returns - here’s all the ways your broker’s performance numbers can mislead you.
Not taking into account the impact of dividend income on your portfolio performance leaves you seeing only part of the picture.
