Welcome to our final monthly newsletter for the year. And what a year it has been. We briefly review the three big elements of personal finance: property, shares and interest rates, before signing off from newsletters for 2022. Read on to find out more. And see you in 2023!
September was a big month and not just for football fans. September also saw (another) interest rate rise, (another) fall in residential property prices and (another) conniption on global share markets. Read on to find out more.
Welcome to our September newsletter. Interest rates are at it again, although in this newsletter we discuss evidence that the Australian market is perhaps not as worried about inflation as the US is. Residential property doesn’t like higher interest rates, though.
Welcome to our August newsletter. As promised last month, we take a close look at the residential property market this month – and the news is good for homeseekers. We also look at how inflation and higher interest rates seem to be pushing the share market… higher. Enjoy and let us know if there is anything that you need from us.
Welcome to our July newsletter – our first for the new financial year. The end of the financial year has seen dips in the prices of shares and residential property, with higher interest rates the cause for both. In this newsletter, we take a really ‘techy deep-dive’ into what is driving interest rates higher. Enjoy!
Welcome to our June newsletter – our first since the Federal election. Given there has been a change in Government, we discuss the potential impact for residential property, which is still Australia’s largest asset class, as well as examine any likely effect of the change on share market prices. Enjoy!
Welcome to our May newsletter. We hope you like it. Earlier this week, the RBA decided to increase their target for the cash interest rate by 0.25%. Markets have been expecting this given the presence of inflation. This month we look at the way inflation and interest rates can impact on share markets.
Welcome to our Budget edition newsletter. This week we saw the Commonwealth Government pass down the Federal Budget a couple of months earlier than usual. We go through all of the major announcements as they relate to our clients. There is nothing extraordinary in the Budget, but there is some good news. So, please enjoy!
This month, we spend some time talking and thinking about one of our major macroeconomic indicators – unemployment. We also look at the recent performance of the share market and ask whether the Russia-Ukraine conflict is likely to impact that market. If you or someone you love is affected by recent events in Ukraine, please know you are in our thoughts.
Happy New Year! It is good to be back. In this newsletter, we look at the performance of the Australian Share Market and the current state of play in interest rates and examine the role that inflation might play in both of these markets.
Welcome to our December newsletter, our final piece for 2021. We reflect on the year we have just had and look forward to what can be expected in 2022. Safe to say investors in shares and/or property had a very good 2021. We wish all our readers a safe and happy year end and look forward to seeing you early in the New Year.
