When you consider Australia’s ageing population and how your portfolio can reap the benefits of baby boomers’ ballooning wealth, sometimes it pays to think outside the box. Baby boomers don’t need just housing and healthcare. Travel, wealth management, insurance and essential services are also high on their list of needs and wants.
Guided by Skaffold’s core principles of investing (solid balance sheet with minimal debt, strong profitability as measured by return on equity, rising earnings and strong cash flow) we logged into the online stock research tool to hunt for off-the-radar opportunities that appear set to benefit from a growing population of cashed-up retirees.
As you’ll discover, these stocks don’t rely solely on baby boomers for their success. Having diversity in their revenue streams, which is supported in part by a growing segment of the population, only helps strengthen their ability to expand their market share and produce rising earnings and profits year after year.
