The ‘SW Top 10 Members’ is an index comprised of the top 20 stocks, held by the top 10 best performing portfolios. That’s the top 10 of over 50,000 portfolios! Needless to say, to be in the top 10 you’ve got to be pretty good and not just relying on speccy stocks…
The index is rebalanced quarterly, therefore now’s the perfect time to have a look at how things have changed quarter on quarter.
How Does an Investor Make It Into the Top 10?
The WealthCheck score is SelfWealth’s proprietary measurement used to rank an investor against the Community. It takes into account an investor’s performance over a 12-month period (50% of the score) as compared to the Community, the diversity of their portfolio (40% of the score) and the valuation as per Thomson Reuters (the remaining 10%). The WealthCheck is then represented as a letter, starting from A+ and bottoming out at F.
How Does This Index Perform?
As of 1st October, this index has returned a whopping 36.5% over the last 12 months including dividends. If you’re a SelfWealth Member you can rebalance your portfolio to an index like this after a few clicks — all buy and sell trades are placed for you to match the target! Remember, you’ll never pay more than $9.50 per trade at SelfWealth.
Without further ado, see below for the top 20 stocks equally weighted, held by the top 10 investors.
Note: the coloured dots represent overvaluation (red), fair valuation (yellow), undervaluation (green) or no valuation given (black) by Thomson Reuters at the time of viewing that stock.

The ETF Hype Continues
The previous quarter contained a total of five ETFs – VAF, VAS, VTS, ETHI and IVV – but we’ve now got eight ETFs in the index. Noticeably some exposure to Asia and an increase in exposure to the US. US ETFs representing 20% of the portfolio if weighted equally, an approach SelfWealth champions.
SelfWealth is poised to launch its very own ETF soon, driven by Community data… watch this space!
The Big Ins
The FinTech revolution is also gaining traction with the Community. Afterpay makes the cut for the first time as the Community backs independent financial institutions as opposed to the big 4 banks.
The Big Outs
Telstra is out. Has the Community woken up to the fact, that although Telstra has historically paid great franked dividends, maybe the capital growth story is not so rosy for the future?
The Banks Hold On (Just…)
Despite the findings of the Royal Commission and the subsequent media beating, the top performers continue to hold onto NAB, Westpac and Macquarie. CBA and ANZ are notable by their absence, however, they weren’t in the index last quarter either.
