It is a well-known fact that most investors don’t achieve great results over the long term. In fact, most investors underperform the investments they invest in, with the primary reason being a lack of investment knowledge. As professional investment managers, we constantly see investors with very poorly constructed investment portfolios, taking far too much risk to earn too little. We believe that poor investing is affecting the lifestyle of all Australians, and is a huge drain on our economy.
Better InvestingTM was created to help investors improve their returns and reduce their risk, by providing important investment information in an easy to understand format – information that is usually the domain of the world’s most sophisticated investors and industry professionals.
Better InvestingTM is produced by Rushton Financial Services (RFS), the investment manager for the various Rushton funds. The Executive Directors of RFS are father and son team, Glenn and Lee Rushton. Glenn holds a Graduate Diploma of Applied Finance and Investment and has nearly four decades of business experience, including many years as a property developer and investment manager. He was also an elite athlete and coach, winning five national martial arts titles as a competitor, and coaching numerous champions in both martial arts and boxing, including Jeff Horn, who made the quarter finals at the London Olympics before turning professional and winning the WBO world welterweight title, defeating 11 times world champion Manny Pacquiao on 2 July 2017 in Australia’s biggest ever boxing event in front of more than 51,000 people at Suncorp Stadium. Due to this incredible victory, Jeff won the prestigious Don Award in 2017, presented to the Australian athlete who has most inspired the nation.
