Luke on 2CC – Risk and your investment portfolio

Financial Planner Luke Smith joined 2CC Talking Canberra 1206AM in Money Matters, which aired on Friday 1 March 2024 with Leon Delaney. This week’s show considers risk and your investment portfolio. The show encourages listeners to consider how risky is the portfolio they’re holding. Many people are often surprised about the risk they’re taking within their superannuation when they take a closer look.

  • The difference between growth and defensive investments
  • Why you need to invest according to your own risk tolerance
  • Luke shares his top tips around thinking about risk and your investments and super
