Have been blessed with some capital from a long-deceased grandfather and currently doing some research on the investment strategies.
Money is currently invested in managed fund and doing well but I am considering increasing my leverage through the use of a margin loan.
I understand there are a number of australian funds who are returning around the 20% p.a. mark (pre-perform/man fee's). With the cost of margin lending 8-10% (?), it seems it might be possible to take further advantage of current returns.
I am not dependent upon any cash flows from the money and am willing to take on volatility if it means longer term gain + managed funds seem like a good option whilst I learn the ropes.
Would most appreciate any advice.
