  • It’s a scary time in markets and in today's episode Bryce & Alec give some practical advice to reassure you.

    This isn't the first time that markets have gone down or into a bear market. The beauty of investing is that there are clear historical signs that the markets have gone up, more than than have gone down.

    IF IN DOUBT ZOOM OUT - Between 1900 and 2018, the Australian stock market had 23 years where it went down, and 96 years where it went up - meaning 81% of those years were good years.

  • We're dropping in a special bonus episode - our latest podcast from the Equity Mates team - The Dive. In this episode, Brisbane, Australia’s third largest city, was announced it was selected to host the 2032 Olympics. And when it happens, the eyes of the world will turn to Australia. No small amount of eyeballs either - when Tokyo hosted, the Olympics reached more than 3 billion viewers. Yet, despite all the attention… the Olympics is a terrible business proposition. A study from Oxford found that since 1960, every Olympics has run over budget, by an average of 172%. Today Sascha and Darcy ask - exactly how bad a financial decision is hosting the Olympics?

  • The growing popularity of ETF's (exchange-traded funds) among the Equity Mates Community continues. The industry received record net inflows into existing ETFs and a number of successful new launches in 2021. Investors have shown a growing appetite for theme-based ETFs while maintaining similar enthusiasm for active and environmental, social, and governance factor-based ETFs.

    We came across some data about the biggest inflows and outflows for ETFs in 2021. Thanks to Morningstar.

    There were 5 ETFs that had over $800 million net inflow and 4 ETFs that had over $100 million net outflows. 

    We can learn a lot about investor preferences from this data, so in this episode, Bryce & Alec unpack and discuss the top 5 most loved, and the top 5 least fav ETF's for 2021.

  • Micro investing is a clever way to Get Started Investing in the markets. 41% of our Equity Mates community currently use a micro investing platform.

    In simple terms, micro investing is where a broker will pool investor money to buy one unit. In Australia you can micro invest with as little as 1cent.

    Micro investing gives us the ability to invest in small amounts, it can automate and allow us to set & forget. But most of all it reduces the media and market 'noise' ... by limiting our choice and relive us from worrying about losing big chunks of money.

    In today's conversation, Bryce and Alec discuss whether micro investing is 'a thing' anymore.
