Shares for Investment
Somerset Smith Partners have always been an advocate of investing directly in the shares of quality blue chip companies. We seek to provide our clients with an advantage by maintaining careful and considered strategies. We pride ourselves on being “stock pickers” and long term holders of the good performers of a portfolio. We are prepared to back selections with overweight positions and this has seen our portfolios perform well, particularly against market or index related funds.
In our view, a direct investment in shares is important, as it will provide both capital and income growth. By contrast, fixed interest investments will provide regular income, however, they will not provide income growth or capital growth. Shares also provide a high degree of liquidity, which allows investors to readily access their capital should their circumstances change.
The key decisions are stock selection and portfolio weightings. Somerset Smith Partner’s NZX accredited and experienced advisers are ideally positioned to advise investors on the best course of action.
