Harmy, thank you for the links, I am just in the process of looking
them up,

I am totally ignorant about etf's as yet. I have some vague recollection that there are a few in Aus that track the top 100,
but thats the limit of my knowledge right now.

I am wondering seriously if it would be more profitable to invest in
o'seas etf's, what drawbacks would there be there for an Aus resident?

I really dont like funds-- I think the management fees and various
other expenses are way too high for my liking, so I have avoided those.
I will have to find out the expense ratios of the etf's and get some
comparision,

Actually I am thinking that it may well be more profitable all round
to invest o'seas altogether and skip the Aus market.

I have never explored the possibility of investing o'seas (UK or US)
but I would be very interested in what you think and your experiences
with this.


Best.
FC,
