Stockbroking & Investing

Stockbroking & Investing

Getting started or getting serious

At Burrell we provide full service stockbroking services. We can assist you to buy and sell shares and other listed investments on the ASX or NSX, and through our international agents we have access to most major markets. Yet, we view our advice on portfolio construction as our greatest service offering.

Over the long-term the Australian sharemarket continues to be a true performer enabling many investors to build long-term wealth. However, with any investment there is risk and having a professional adviser by your side is our biggest tip for investment success.

Burrell's top investment notes

  1. Equip yourself with knowledge. Don't 'go it alone'. Ensure you have ready access to the information you need and a professional adviser to help you make better investment decisions.
  2. Identify a strategy and stick to it. Determine your personal circumstances, investor profile and strategy, and commit to a considered investment solution.
  3. Invest for the long term. A long-term commitment to investing will reduce your risk, so remain focused on what you want to achieve in the long run.
  4. Diversify, diversify, diversify. Diversification reduces risk. Consider different asset classes, companies, industries, countries and funds, and pick your time.
  5. Remember the tax implications. Where you can, harness tax breaks and incentives, and minimise the effects of taxation.
