    EX20 Mgmt Fee** (% p.a.) 0.20% seems reasonable. Be interesting to see where they yield comes out.

    What would happen if one of their shares gets into the top 20? Big sell off incurring CGT?

    There are no specific clauses to grandfather the holding. So that would possibly be the case and that would imply a large purchase of the now ex20 company that is now included in their criteria.

    These are the problems rules based selection faces. For me some flexibility here would be nice, the LIC QVE specifically addresses this concern in an appropriate way IMO.

    Also of interest that per the website the largest sector holdings are;

    Materials 19.1% - Discussed extensively around here why they aren't favoured in general by many
    Real Estate 13.4% - Many here already have their own direct investment in this area (largely residential, over CIP I guess)

    30%+ weighing to sectors I am using shares to try and underweight.

    Hi @austing. Could you please comment on the kind of portfolio you'd setup from that list if that was your super?

    I'm not liscenced to give advice and tend to avoid giving specific portfolios anymore. However I've bolded those below we hold in our SMSF. You'll find many of the LICs / ETFs available through ING Super discussed on this site such as:

    LICs:
    AFI, ARG, BKI, MLT, WHF (large caps)
    MIR, WAM (mid / small caps)
    PMC, MFF (international)

    ETFs:
    VAS - ASX 300
    VGS - international developed markets
    VAF - Australian fixed interest

    I don't invest in all the above but there is plenty there to enable most to put together a decent portfolio whether you're an asset allocator or a dividend investor. ING Super offer heaps more than those shown above if you decide to get adventurous.

    Of course the above doesn't tell you at what price to buy particularly in the case of LICs (discount / premiums etc).

    Buy low, sell high, that's what I always say.

    Not advice.

    Interesting, I would have thought VGS would be somewhere between VEU and VTS

    [copy of question I wrote in the LICs thread. Mods, please delete from either if inappropriate to double up!]

    I've done no real DD on stocks or LICs - been focussed on property - but I'd love to buy when others are worried (a la Buffett).
    I assume the advice here would be "don't jump now without DD"... but if you were, taking into account the next day or so's volatility and possible pickups, what would you do assuming no SMSF but some cash?
