I currently have an Australian super account with a balanced allocation. Noticed in the last three months there has been no returns from either this all the Conservative balanced. In fact most of the conservative offerings by Australian super are stagnant. Probably reflects the general state of the Australian share market. Many commentators talking up the benefits of International shares.
I am now contemplating allocating 20-25% of my portfolio to International shares hedged on the expectation that the Australian dollar will continue its slow downward slide. I'm conscious of the fact that the shares will be a bit more volatile I'm hoping to anticipate any major jolts and readjust my portfolio at short notice. Wonder if anyone else is been looking at this particular strategy.
