WHY INVEST INTERNATIONALLY?


International shares offer the ability to diversify your portfolio and access investment opportunities across the globe. The Australian equity market only represents ~2% of world market capitalisation. Investing globally offers a much larger and broader opportunity set than domestic shares. Including global shares in your investment portfolio can reduce the reliance on the Australian economy, allow you to invest in world-leading brands, and increase your portfolio diversification as not all world share markets increase or decrease in value at the same time.

HOW TO DECIDE WHAT TO BUY?


Conservative Portfolios

Conservative portfolios tend to be reasonably defensive in nature. The companies are likely to be mature, pay dividends and have less fluctuations in share prices. Conservative Vues include: Silver Haired Economy, Feed the World, Buffett Top Ten, Battle of the Bulge, Alcohol and Tobacco, and Dividend Kings.

Growth Portfolios

Growth portfolios are comprised of companies that are likely to offer high levels of capital growth over the medium to longer term but whose share prices might undergo short-term fluctuations in value. Growth-oriented Vues include: Disruptive Technology, Asian Healthcare, Luxury Goods, Tech Stars, Internet of Things, Entertainment, Social Media, Gaming, and the Car of the Future.

Income Oriented Portfolios

Income-oriented portfolios are likely to provide capital protection coupled with sustainable income. Vues in this category include: Dividend Kings, Silver Haired Economy, and Big Oil.

Socially Responsible Portfolios

We also offer Vues designed around environmental and social issues. Some of the world's leading companies in corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability find their place in Vues like the Clean Tech and Water – Liquid Gold Vues.

BENEFITS OF INVESTING WITH MACROVUE


Diversification of investment portfolio

Our Vues include shares of companies from diverse sectors and/or geographies. International shares are typically less correlated with Australian shares and adding them to your investment portfolio could help you reduce total risk via diversification.

We keep you updated

Our Vues are regularly monitored. Our team of analysts periodically review and rebalance Vues. We notify clients of any changes made so you can follow our recommendations in any stock/s we trade within the Vues.

Low fees

Macrovue offers some of the lowest brokerage fees in Australia for both domestic and international equities. Our foreign exchange rate is competitive relative to the major financial institutions.

Access to global brands

Access to foreign exchanges means you can invest in world’s leading companies such as GE, Walmart, Google, Apple, Nestle, Tesla among others. You can also invest in many rapidly growing companies and emerging growth stories like India and China via American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) listed in the U.S.

Access to companies listed in exchanges across 18 countries

Macrovue gives you access to stocks and ETFs in major international stock exchanges like NYSE, NASDAQ, London Stock Exchange, SGX (Singapore), Hong Kong Stock Exchange and Tokyo Stock Exchange.

Portfolio based investing

When you buy the share of one company, you take on risk related to the individual company (stock specific risk) and also risk related to the overall share market (market risk). Investing in a Vue can help you reduce the risk related to individual companies in your portfolio, reducing the overall risk of your investment in a theme.

Evolving investment themes

Industries and companies are changing rapidly today, enabled by emerging technologies. Macrovue helps you to stay ahead of the curve and invest in emerging global themes and trends – from ideas like water scarcity, global obesity to clean technology.

One easy-to-use platform

Trade, monitor and track on the same easy-to-use platform. Track performance of the individual shares or at a portfolio level and see what’s driving performance – capital gains, income or currency fluctuations.

Global research
