Investment Philosophy

Our investment philosophy and portfolio construction methods are based on the following key economic principles:


  • Capital markets work and build wealth over time

  • It’s time in the market, not market timing

  • Risk and return are related

  • Diversification is essential

  • Markets are efficient at pricing and reflect value and information accurately and quickly

Self Managed Retirement Systems understand that it is important to plan for the future as it is to plan for today. Part of that future long-term plan is Estate Planning; this is anticipating and arranging for the disposal of your estate after your death.


Estate planning typically attempts to eliminate uncertainties over the administration of a probate and maximise the value of the estate by reducing taxes and other expenses.
