Gearing Summary:

Margin Investment Loan My Gearing
Lender Value Balance Equity % LVR
------- ----------- ----------- ----------- ------- -----
Comsec $185,030.12 $94,108.28 $90,921.84 103.5% 50.9%
Leveraged $270,499.73 $155,626.48 $114,873.25 135.5% 57.5%

Overall $455,529.85 $249,734.76 $205,795.09 121.4% 54.8%



With my margin loans interest rate for the past year averaging around 7.5% pa, the average total return (capital gain + dividends) of 14.37% for my investments meant gearing added to my overall portfolio performance over the past year. This was a good year (bull market), giving a geared return of around 22%! In the longer term I'm aiming to average approx. 10% total return on the investments, giving a geared return of around 12.5%... we'll see how it works out Wink
