Property Securities & other managed funds

  1. 1 Posts.
    Hi - new to this message board, & not much experience in the finance world, so be easy on me! I'm trying to decide where to invest a few $000 that is currently getting 4.5% in the bank. Been looking at Property securities, but is there any historical correlation between value of Property securities & interest rates - I've just read that if interest rates go up, the PS funds could fall in value. Or does it depend on whether the fund invests primarily in capital growth or rental return?Or is there absolutely no correlation at all? Anyone got an opinion on what sector might be a better bet otherwise? Of course I could try a 'safe' Diversified Balanced Fund, but I'm prepared to invest for a few years & hence prepared to ride out the volatility of the sector funds for the sake of higher returns (hopefully!)
