Common Questions

What is a Share?

A share or stock is a portion of ownership of a company. If more shares are then purchased the owners stake in the company get larger.

How to buy shares?

Shares are bought and sold in Australia on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX). Other countries also have their own Exchanges. Future Assist can advise on which shares to buy and through a stockbroker purchase them on your behalf.

What is an index fund and why should I consider using it?

An index fund is a type of fund with a portfolio constructed to match or track the components of a market index, such as the S&P/ASX 200 Index. An index fund can provide broad market exposure, low operating expenses, and low portfolio turnover. Index funds adhere to specific rules or standards that remain in effect no matter the state of the markets.

What are franking credits and how do they work?

When a company pays a dividend from their net earnings they have already paid tax. When the owner receives the dividend it comes with franking credits to ensure the owner does not get taxed twice on the dividend when they complete their tax return.

How much should I invest in shares?

The amount a person should invest in shares depends on many factors. A Financial Planning assessment will be able to discover the right amount for each individual situation.

What are dividends?

Dividends payments are the net profits from the company and are distributed proportionality amongst the shareholders. Their payment frequencies are usually annually, biennially, and quarterly and are determined by the company’s board of directors.

What is an indice (index)?

Indices allow investors to gain insight into the performance of an asset class or a section of that asset class. Indices are often used to benchmark the performance of portfolios designed to replicate the performance of a given asset class.

What is an ETF?

An ETF, or exchange-traded fund is a basket of shares that can be traded like a single share on the stock market. An ETF combines the diversification of a managed style fund with the accessibility of individual share trading.

What is diversification?

Put simply, diversification is spreading your investments into different asset classes, sectors, and markets. In other words: not putting all your eggs in one basket. Diversifying your investments may help to spread risk across your investment portfolio. It's a way to reduce your exposure to certain assets that may be under-performing. For example, if your portfolio consisted of 100% property and, over the long-term, property growth goes down in value, then 100% of your portfolio will decrease. This is where diversification can be helpful.
