Morningstar Premium’s vision has always been to empower your success. Over the last two years, we have had a dedicated team working on improving your experience.

Here’s some of the new features on the site that are here to help you on your investing journey.

 

Save your target asset allocation using our guidance and compare your portfolio to your target

As an investor, when you are trying to accomplish a goal, you construct a portfolio made up of different types of asset classes such as cash, bonds and stocks. The question at the heart of portfolio construction is the decision on what asset classes to include and how much of each to include. This process is informed by comparing the risk and return requirements to accomplish your goal, and the risk and return expectations of each asset class.

For investors starting out, compare your asset allocation with our target asset allocations through our new tool. Understand whether your exposure to growth and defensive assets is expected to help you reach your goal.

For seasoned investors, over time, the growth or shrinking of asset classes will adjust your original allocations. Use this tool to check if your portfolio has your expected risk/return profile, and whether your exposure is in line with our target allocations.

To try it out, go to Track Investments, view a Portfolio, then click the IPS tab.

Make sure your portfolio is on track

A required rate of return is a variation of the Time Value of Money formula—it answers the fundamental question of how much an investment will be worth in the future given a certain rate of return and time frame. This calculator is a simple re-arrangement of this formula, allowing you to input your circumstances—and it helps you to understand the rate of return you need to get there, and whether it may be achievable.

Required rate-of-return calculator

Your goals and required rate of return can be saved, allowing you to periodically assess whether your portfolio is on track.

Find your required rate of return through the goal calculator, which you can find in the ‘Track Investments’ section of Morningstar Premium.

Already got an investment strategy?

Morningstar Premium’s Portfolio Projection tool will allow you to see whether you’re on track with the strategy you have now, and where your portfolio will end up within a chosen time frame. It allows you to see values in today’s dollars, and take inflation into consideration.

Find the Portfolio Projection tool in the ‘Track Investments’ section of Morningstar Premium.

I know the return I need. Now what?

Morningstar’s Asset Allocation models will help you decide what asset classes to include, and how much to include of each in your portfolio.

Morningtar's Asset Allocation Models

When you’re trying to accomplish a goal, an investor constructs a portfolio made up of different types of asset classes such as cash, bonds and stocks. The question at the heart of portfolio construction is the decision on what asset classes to include and how much of each to include. This process is informed by comparing the risk and return requirements to accomplish the investor’s goal and the risk and return expectations of each asset class. Investors can choose between growth assets and defensive assets.

Growth assets such as Australian shares, international shares, property and infrastructure which tend to carry high levels of risk, but also carry the potential for higher returns over time. Defensive assets such as government bonds, corporate credit and cash carry lower levels of risk, but typically earn lower returns. To assist with this process, Morningstar has created five different defensive/growth asset class combinations related to five different levels of risk: Conservative, Cautious, Balanced, Growth and Aggressive.

Understand what’s needed to reach your goals. Find our asset allocation models in the ‘Track Investments’ section of Morningstar Premium.
