Self-Managed Super Funds (SMSFs) typically invest in a rather narrow range of assets: equities, fixed income, property, private equity or infrastructure, and cash. Ashley Burtenshaw, Partner at Gryphon Capital Investments, says these assets are increasingly correlated under the label of ‘risk-on assets’, reducing the benefits of diversification.

As markets continue to trend higher, he says it’s important that the income part of investors’ portfolios don’t correlate with the risk part of the portfolio.

“I would strongly encourage those investing for income to look at strategies that are uncorrelated to the more traditional assets.”
