XTB Price Sheets

Are your clients' expectations aligned with your own?

Research shows an 85% expectation gap between investors and professionals

Low interest rates are now the norm, with market commentators and economists suggesting they are here for some time. You only have to look at the ASX futures curve below to see this in practice. So in this environment investors need to adjust their expectations of the returns that are achievable. However recent research suggests Australian investors expect 85% more returns than professionals feel is achievable.

XTB FYE 19 Performance Reports

Another quarter of strong performance from XTB portfolios

XTB portfolios continue to deliver. Performance reports to 30 June 2019 for each of the recommended XTB portfolios are now available.

When considering fixed rate bond securities, please note performance of fixed rate bonds has been positively impacted by recent interest rate cuts. Whilst there is an expectation of further interest rate cuts, as evidenced by the futures market pricing, if the interest rate cycle turns, it is likely that the performance of fixed rate bonds will be negatively impacted. Past performance is no guarantee of future performance.
