The Australian share market has prospered over the past 25 years, despite constantly changing economic conditions, political environments, investor sentiments and market ups and downs.
Share market investing is easy and puts you in control
At any given time, there are generally both buyers and sellers in the market, making it easy to buy and sell shares conveniently, at a competitive price. This is in contrast to investments such as property, which can often be expensive and time-consuming to buy and sell.
Share market investing doesn't cost the earth
Another benefit of investing in shares is that the cost of buying and selling is relatively cheap in comparison to a lot of other investments, including property and many managed investment funds.
It's easy to get started with small amounts
Investing in shares is easy and you can start with a small amount of money. You don't need to be wealthy or risk everything you own just to get into the share market.
