Full Service Stockbroking & Wealth Management
An investment is a commitment of funds made in expectation of a positive rate of return in the future. The motive behind investment varies from person – for most investors, however, their interest is primarily to earn a return on their money. But the return on a stock market security is subject to risk. Risk refers to the uncertainty surrounding actual realization of the rate of return offered by an investment. The time element refers to the period of waiting required to reap the reward. Accordingly, most early investment decisions have three key aspects:return, risk, and time. Investors’ goals are usually expressed in terms of return – the hard fact is that in most cases return and risk are inseparable.
Our full-service stockbroking advisory solutions are designed to help investors maximise investment performance and effectively manage their portfolio and exposures, thereby mitigating the risk factor.

Why Invest in Equities?
Collective Funds: Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)
An ETF is an investment fund that trades on a stock exchange, much like equities, but which provides exposure to a variety of assets. Investing in an ETF is a cost-effective way for you to achieve returns from indices such as the FTSE or the S&P 500 without having to purchase each individual stock. They are effectively an entire market wrapped up in one share as they invest in a basket of securities from a particular index.
Why Invest in ETFs?
Investors benefit from the best of both stock and investment fund characteristics, with instant market access at competitive cost levels and with substantial daily liquidity. Through the efficiency of ETFs, you can access major equity indices, emerging markets, commodities, currencies, bonds, alternative investments and leveraged index ETFs.
Collective Funds: Investment Trusts
An investment trust is a publicly listed company, designed to generate profits for its shareholders by investing in the shares of other companies. Shares in investment trusts are traded on the exchange so investors can buy and sell from the market, rather than dealing with a fund management company.
Why Invest in Investment Trusts?
Investors can gain from cost-effective exposure to a diversified and professionally-run portfolio covering a range of markets, sectors and companies. Risk is spread out more than if reliant on the success of one or even a handful of investments. A trust’s manager can also borrow money to increase market exposure in order to support returns in rising markets.
