In the current environment it is increasingly difficult to get both income and growth from any one asset. As a result, private investor Aidan Clubley has tried to build up a diverse portfolio; including property, car parking spaces, direct shareholdings as well as more conventional managed funds.

“It’s trying to get the balance right between income and growth. I want my investments to provide some yield, but also want to ensure that my capital grows over the longer term,” he explained. “Access to my money is also a factor. While I am prepared to tie up some of my savings for longer periods – I don’t want all of my money to be locked away. I want to be able to access some of my capital, should I need it.”

Clubley says this approach also means he has a very mixed risk profile: “Some of my investments are far riskier than others. But where I have higher risk holdings I try to balance with investments that deliver steadier returns.”
