118. Income vs Capital Growth Assets

Welcome back to another episode of the 360 Money Matters Podcast! 

In this episode, we discuss the difference between income and capital growth assets. We explain that capital growth refers to the increase in the value of an asset over time, while income is usually received in the form of dividends or rent. We also mention that these principles apply to other asset classes such as managed funds or shares. Additionally, we emphasize that there is no one-size-fits-all approach and that different investment strategies are appropriate at different times depending on individual goals and life stages.

Furthermore, we also discuss franking credits associated with dividend income from shares and how they can be advantageous for investors. We explore the concept of being “asset rich, cash poor,” where individuals have significant assets but limited cash flow due to low rental yields or living expenses exceeding income generated by assets. Lastly, we delve into strategies for repositioning assets or investing in capital growth assets to address this issue.

Join us in this episode as we continue to explore the dynamic world of investments. Don’t miss out on valuable insights and strategies tailored to your financial goals.
