    I use ING and have received advice on how to participate in a SPP (specifically the recent ARG SPP). Hopefully this will continue with future SPPs, don't have a link to a PDS so not sure on technicalities or what might affect participation.

    Maybe have a think about a standalone blue chip like the link below it always pays to have it spread so it has the power to miltiply the 100$$ mark may well be broken this year..imho..

    Yes of course I could just buy the top ten holding of a standard oz Index etf - banks, Telstra, BHP, Rio etc. but I like the idea of a single etf. Saves a bunch of hassles for me as I just want some broad overall Oz exposure.

    @Hodor, I too wish to participate in LIC SPPs via ING. Should I just call ING or can I do it through their web platform?

    BTW when was ARG's recent SPP?

    Thanks.

    Assuming that future SPPs are processed in the same way you receive an email from ING when a SPP is announced and be asked to log into your ING super account and look under "corporate actions".

    I got an email RE ARG's SPP on the 9/9/16. The email asked me to log into my ING super account and look under "corporate actions" where you could gain further information and/or participate. I wasn't interested in the ARG SPP so I didn't go through the process.

    Just having a look at the Stockspot report

    upload_2017-1-13_20-6-7.png

    With a mixture of US, OZ, International and Bonds (roughly 7.5% plus dividends/distributions) you would have done okay in comparison

    There is also is the benefit of exponential business growth, dividends and the compounding effects on ETF's

    One of the 8 ETFs in my Super ... IJR

    126% return in 6 months. Does this look correct?!

    Indicates a split @ 20 Jan.

    Nb - performance above is incorrect lol! Sharesight confused.

    In my super I am holding DJRE, IJR, IOO, IRU, IVV, IXJ, IXI, VAP ( not in equal weights ). I also have other super investments.

    In my portfolio outside of super I also have IXJ, VAP, IFRA, VGS. My first plays with ETFs and much smaller parcels. Also currently hold 13 direct shares.

    From The Fool

    How the Vanguard Australian Share Index ETF can fund your retirement

    With the ASX's total market cap representing less than 2% of the global market cap, its also worthwhile having some international exposure

    When Wall Street veteran Gordon Murray told his good friend and financial advisor, Dan Goldie, that he had only six months to live, Dan responded, “Do you want to write that book you’ve always wanted to do?”

    The result was The Investment Answer: Learn to Manage Your Money & Protect Your Financial Future.

    A Dying Bankers Last Instructions


    Gordon Murray, 25 year veteran of Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers and Credit Suisse Boston tells Reps Jackie Speier, Dennis Kucinich and others the inside scoop on how Wall Street thinks, acts, and views its relationship with the government

    5 Common Misconceptions about Passive Investing

    1. There’s no action in passive investing
    2. Because of costs, passive investing achieves returns below market averages
    3. Passive investing is a cookie-cutter strategy that underperforms active investing
    4. Active investors outperform passive investors during down markets
    5. Passive investing isn’t as tax efficient as active investing


    US Centric, but still worth a read
