    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

    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.
