Mid 30's, looking for what split I should have between Australian shares, International shares, property, cash, interest, bonds, options, etc. or maybe none of the above. What is considered to be a "safe" ratio and what are the slices of this pie made up of?
Updating according to request from Answerers, sorry these factors are obviously critical to answering the question, not my area of expertise (clearly :) ).
Income = 100K pa
Wealth = approx. 350K existing investments (50% blue chip aussie shares/50% term deposit)
Expenses = none
Job Security = contractor, but my industry has a deficit of workers.
time horizon (i.e. when will you need the money) = when i retire at 60ish, although I probably need 200k i guess in the next 6 months to buy an investment property. Although perhaps I should post a seperate question about what level(%) of debt to take on when property investing this would determine how much capital I should keep for the investment.
No dedicated Emergency fund: thanks for that advice I will build one.
