Active Retirees : Active Retirees Dec-Jan 2013
Active RetireesTM | 37 has pros and cons. The most obvious is to buy a farm, but buying a viable economic farm costs millions of dollars, and it has to be managed well, which won't suit many retirees. Another easy way is to buy agricultural stocks, such as dairy company Warrnambool Cheese and chemicals company Nufarm, which are liquid. But ag stocks tend to be cyclical and therefore require expert timing. The choice of stocks is also relatively limited. Corbett notes that agricultural companies make up less than one per cent of the market capitalisation of the ASX. For a more 'pure' direct exposure to agricultural commodities, retirees can trade derivatives: agricultural futures, contracts for difference (CFDs) and options. The ASX offers futures such as grain and oilseed, but this sort of investing is not within everyone's reach. Retirees need "big licks of money" to trade futures through a broker, according to Higgins, who suggests that it's best left to the experts. Retirees can take small exposures to agriculture through a simple ETF such as BetaShares' Agriculture ETF. It is listed on the ASX and tracks the S&P agriculture select index. It aims to deliver the return of the four major 'soft' commodities: corn, wheat, soybeans and » Group Events is a family owned business specialising in worldwide group travel for 29 years.
