Hello all, this is my first post on this forum. It seems like there's a good amount of knowledge here and hopefully I can learn from you guys and maybe even contribute back.
I recently went to a free seminar and consultation with a financial advisor and they were pushing passive index funds fairly hard. (They also tried to sell me some insurance so I'm not too sure about them)
Im not about to rush out and invest on some free advice though so I was wondering if anyone could point me to some good resources to read up on about aussie index funds.
Preferably ones that can be invested in through commsec.
Do the funds actually match the index results fairly closely or is it much more variable in reality?
