Hi, I have become a big fan of this forum - the quality and quantity of information here is amazing. A relative newbie to investing, and have been mainly lurking around the property threads on this site. I have a few IPs - recently bought in Brisbane... But now I feel that property cycle may not be ideal in Sydney where I live, and so am looking at diversifying and get into share market. I am more of a long term view, set and forget, style - and time poor busy professional and so my time is better spent on my proper day job Right now, I would like to deploy at least $100K of my offset cash to purchase ETFs and on reading the various relevant threads here, am thinking about VAS, VTS, VGS. After that, I might look at some LIC (perhaps another $100K?). I am thinking that it is as good a time as any right now to get into the share market, which may be in a relative dip in its cycle compared to the peak of Sydney property market. I would be grateful for any relevant guidance here, but one specific question is regarding what would be the best way to make these investments once I decide which ETF and what proportions in my portfolio? Would you recommend that I purchase them in $10-20K parcels (I use CommSec), on different weeks/months to apply Dollar Cost Averaging? Or if I want $50K worth, should I just bite the bullet and purchase that amount? I think brokerage fee is relatively minimal as a % of the investment given the amounts concerned here. I understand that DCA is particularly useful in a declining market as it does average out the prices, although I am not really trying to time the market here and have a long term (ie. 10-15 yr+) view to my investment. Thank you !
