AMP's chief economist, Shane Oliver, says Australian investors have tended to favor bank deposits and property in the past few years - but says to keep doing so could be a mistake

    Great article and good points. As you mention, confidence was extremely vibrant up until 2008, then we have seen more of a hedge action occurring as investors head into cash and dividend shares, income is always going to be first when considering investments and this will boost the staple shares in 2013 I believe. Comodities were once again safe in 2012, but I think we are going to see some sell offs in 2013 as fear and overseas decisions will drive investors back to cash with low rates for safety, not growth.
