Using Masti in a portfolio-

  • For an outlay of $6,700 in the first year, the investor gains $100,000 of exposure to the US share market
  • By investing a smaller outlay, the investor can keep the bulk of their portfolio in defensive assets such as cash whilst still gaining exposure to a growth asset
  • If the investor’s portfolio is heavily weighted to one asset class (such as residential property), Masti provides diversification for a relatively small outlay
  • SMSF investors can obtain leveraged exposure, which may otherwise not be possible
  • If the investor has a relatively low free cash flow, they may still obtain leverage as there are no credit enquiries undertaken
  • The investor can take their portfolio gains and convert them to cash, whilst maintaining ongoing upside exposure to the US share market.
