Which sectors of Australia’s economy will drive growth over the next few years and boost your investment returns?
Will it be local retailers gaining headwinds from the falling Aussie dollar, the booming healthcare sector driven by Australia’s ageing population, or wealth management companies servicing our swelling superannuation assets?

With the low growth environment likely to continue for some time, investors chasing double-digit growth need to look beyond cyclicals wired to the struggling Australian economy, and refocus on sectors displaying what are known as ‘secular growth opportunities’. For those unfamiliar with the term, ‘secular’ refers to companies with growth upside that’s less reliant on macroeconomic drivers and more hitched to company or sector-specific dynamics.

Healthcare represents less than one per cent of the ASX, one of the world’s most dynamic growth sectors.
That’s why most Aussie healthcare stocks trade at what’s known as a ‘scarcity premium’.
Encompassing healthcare facilities, drug and biotechnology stocks, and medical equipment suppliers and manufacturers, the overall quality and performance of Australian healthcare stocks is impressive. Half of the top 10 achieved Skaffold’s preferred stock ratings of A1, A2, B1 and B2 based on their latest financial reports.
Despite a recent sell off, which has seen share prices of the top 10 fall, on average, 3% since late February, safety margins continue to be high, ranging between -15 and -75 per cent.
With the ‘scarcity premium’ enshrouding local healthcare stocks, we went in search of better healthcare value stocks offshore and found 6 standouts.
