Our MT Portfolios

MT Strategy Portfolio

The Strategy Portfolio

This portfolio will provide a slow-moving, sleep at night, low-activity, low-cost, compounding investment. It will include some compounding ETFs, international exposures, LICs, and anything we think is appropriate as a bull market exploiting investment.

MT Growth Portfolio

The Long Term Growth Portfolio

This is the long-term, quality, growth focused, big stock, stock picking portfolio. It is designed to be low or no activity, unless forced by the market or performance to prune and replace.

MT Income Portfolio

The Long Term Income Portfolio

A no heart attacks, long term, low activity, income-focused portfolio for those who like to chase franking. This portfolio may include things that are not equities, and will exploit income opportunities in the short term and long term. .

MT Henry Small Cap Portfolio

The Small Caps Portfolio

With a focus on small cap companies, it is a summation of some of the stocks Henry is following. The point of this portfolio is to give ideas and insights into tech and emerging companies. Small caps are more speculative and risky in nature.
