Online PR News – 21-August-2010 – – Australian-based financial services group Lifestyle Asset Management (LAM) has added two new Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) to its investment product Lifestyle ETF, which is incorporated under the Lifestyle Trader platform.
The move will provide traders with new, lower risk investment opportunities in Gold and Agri-business during these volatile times of global economic unrest.
ETFs have proven an extremely popular investment vehicle due to their provision of easy diversification, low expense ratios and tax efficiency of index funds, while still maintaining all the features of ordinary stock, such as limit orders, short selling and options.
Lifestyle Asset Management’s Chief Investment Officer, Mr Scott Goold, believes the additions to the ETF software will be of great benefit to investors.
“Due to the current state of the global economy a lot of investors are afraid and looking for safe places for their money,” he said.
“As bond prices and fixed interest investments are yielding low rates of return, Gold is shaping as a really a good investment right now, particularly if countries continue to borrow money to add stimulus and devalue their currencies.”
“The Swiss held Gold ETF can offer investors the added security they are searching for.”
Similarly, Mr Goold indicated that the Agri-business ETF would be a smart option for investors striving to capitalise on growth in developing regions such as Asia and South America.
“Food security is a particularly hot topic at the moment – recent increases in Grain prices have Agri-Business in sharp focus,” he said.
“We’ve added an agribusiness ETF so people can invest in a product that holds stocks in Agri-business companies, which will benefit from growth areas like Asia and South America.”
“People are demanding a more Western diet, which puts pressure on food prices and these Agri-business companies should benefit.”
