RBA favours ‘riskier’ investments?

In the wake of the RBA’s decision to leave interest rates unchanged it’s interesting to see some of the commentary on the attractiveness of fixed interest versus ‘riskier’ investments, including property and shares. RBA governor Glenn Stevens is reported to favour investors moving into these asset classes away from low-yielding term deposits.

We have recently been doing some interesting analysis to better understand the long-term value proposition currently offered by the Australian equity markets. We will share the results of the analysis here when completed, but the emerging view – for those with a long-term perspective – is that governor Stevens has a valid point.
