Short-term goals; Long-term goals Realistic Goals are needed. Write them down Then we can plan the investments **** Inflation must be considered in goal-setting Review the Goals. Ensure all stake-holders know the goals – eg a 90yo should still set 10 year goals for investments and ensure beneficiaries are aware of these goals. Goals
Tax, Centrelink…….next Tuesday’s Budget? Cashflow - Lifestyle Goals The choice of holding investment funds in Super vs Outside Super. Preservation Age or Limits Choice of Super Fund (Admin and Trustee Role) – SMSF vs FChoice vs Wrap Structure and Strategy Issues
What are the CashFlow Needs for: Next 2 Years Next 5 Years & Beyond Need Cash and Term Deposits - this section is structured to be “Consumed” Security – eg Government Guarantee Return of the $ invested at the designated time Only after “signing off” this section of the bucket do we then look at LHS of the bucket Asset Mix - Decision 1
The LHS Side of the Bucket. The Goals are: Long-Term Total Returns – 10 Year Targets Sub-goal – replenish the Cash Logical, Rational Investments Volatile Returns are not a concern Income is not a focus – maximising returns is the goal. A business that reinvests is not any less attractive than one that pays out all profit as a dividend. Asset Mix - Decision 2
Invest in 3 ways – profit, rent or interest ************* Inclusions - What is in Hayden AAM– Cash & Term Deposits; Australian & International Shares; Property when attractive Exclusions -What is Excluded - Mortgage Trusts ; Hybrid Investments; Fixed Interest Pooled Investments; Loans to Companies or Property Syndicates; Mezzanine Funds; Second Tier Debt; Hedge Funds; Bond Funds; Balanced/Conservative etc; Structured Funds; Tax-driven investments; Alternatives The Hayden Asset Allocation Model
The three choices: Index Funds Choose Your Own Stocks Contract a Quality Stock-Picker A key question : Are some businesses better than others? Yes – either in a better Industry or having better Management. The business must have High Turnover or High Profit Margins – and this advantage must be sustainable. Stock-Picking - Decision 1

The aim : We are buying a portfolio of shares and then contracting them to Manage it. We can see the underlying investments. We can address each holding and ask the Manager why they part-own that business and what are the key factors that would lead them to sell that business What makes a quality stock-picker Stock-Picking - Decision 2
Fund manager research focuses on the four ‘Ps’ Stated investment policies & strategies. PROCESS PEOPLE Background, qualifications & track record.

An ongoing method of analysing our Managers: We want the businesses that we part-own (via our specialist Fund Managers) to meet these criteria: A Good Business must have: Durable Competitive Advantage A Good Business will never have Price is the single most important motivating factor in the consumer’s decision to buy its Product/Service The Buffett Overlay

farrelly’s 10 Year Forecasts as at *Includes expected currency gain
Summary - farrellys 1. Don’t chase past returns 2. The long term is easier to forecast than the short term 3. In the short term expect the unexpected 4. When prices fall, future returns go up 5. Forecasting can identify good and bad periods to invest 6. Be wary of residential property 7. Equities offer good long-term returns 8. Diversification within portfolio is essential
Are either of these important for achieving our goals?: Picking the bottom? The time-frame to recover The goal is to never overpay for assets. Buy them cheaply.
“The market can stay irrational for longer than an Investor can stay solvent” – JK Gailbraith The HFS model is fine. Clearly defined goals for each section of the bucket. Avoid the Noise. Consider the vested interest of any party that comments.
Some key points: Concentrated Portfolios – Quality Businesses Indexes – what relevance: All Ords; MSCI; etc – basically define the sea in which to fish. We do not want to own a bit of every business. Can hold Cash – ie Fund Managers can hold Cash whilst they are awaiting a better buying opportunity for a business they want to eventually part-own. Specialist Stock-pickers

Transparency Logical and Rational Sound plan – historically and theoretically Contract People with Integrity, Trust, and Mutual Goals Long-term Returns are the key goal For LHS – We need the best strategy for next 10 years. No need to predict short-term (it determines the path rather than the destination) Components of a Sound Plan

Asset Sector Changes – may be small changes needed when the 10 year return differential is significant; eg one sector may have run too fast it is time to move to another sector Switching of Fund Managers – may be needed at any time. NB we will be retaining the same asset sector exposure –eg retaining small-cap shares, but a different Manager It may be driven by portfolio analysis – eg portfolio held by A is not as robust as B. Or it may be driven by better skills or processes to monitor and re-weight the portfolio going forward Switching
