Frequently asked questions

What is the minimum to invest in the Stockspot’s core-satellite options?

The minimum is $50,000. This is to ensure you have enough exposure in all the core asset classes before introducing specific market interests.

How were satellite options (Stockspot Themes) selected?

We have selected ETFs which offer low-cost, transparent and liquid exposure to asset classes, sectors and market factors that compliment the Stockspot core portfolios.

I am an existing client, why would I add a Theme to my portfolio?

Stockspot Themes enable you to choose areas of the market you want a greater focus on in your portfolio offering you more control and personalisation. For example you might want additional exposure to certain geographic regions (such as China or the U.S.), asset classes (global property or bonds), or market factors (small companies, dividend shares or socially responsible shares).

How do I add or change a Theme to my portfolio?

If you are investing $50,000 or more, you can select your chosen Theme/s when you create your account. If you already have a Stockspot portfolio, you can add or change Themes via the Your Investment section of your dashboard.

How much will be invested into each Theme I choose?

We optimise Themes in your portfolio so there's nothing you need to do. Each Theme will typically contribute between 5% and 10% of your overall portfolio once fully implemented.

How many Themes can I add to my portfolio?

You can add a pre-selected Themes bundle or maximum of 3 individual Themes to your portfolio.
