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.
This month we are going back to basics. An overview of the share market and a bit more of a deep dive into residential property prices and the way in which housing affordability has become a problem that regulators need to address. Let us know what you think!
Australia’s share market largely tracked sideways during August. This month, we thought it would be interesting to look back over the last five years to see what the dominant share markets of the world have been. We also discuss how the real state of residential property markets is not likely to be visible until Covid restrictions start to lift in our two main markets.
