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 separate 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.
