MY INTEREST RATE RANT

Published on May 06, 2016

We desperately need a Government with the courage to make decisions that are in the nation’s best long term interest.

Sadly, for a decade now, we have had successive Governments and political leaders whose decisions seem to be in their short term best political interest.

The proposed changes to superannuation announced on Tuesday evening’s Federal Budget are disappointing, at best.

They read more like a fearful political reaction to an Opposition that has been gaining traction in recent months. Labor have (largely) succeeded at painting a picture that the Government is allowing the wealthy to wrought superannuation at the expense of schools, hospitals and education etc.

And with a Federal election in less than two months, the Government is scared and this budget reflects what they are worried about a backlash from voters over.

My Interest Rate Rant

Published on April 29, 2016

Back before the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) met last November to decide on what to do with interest rates I wrote an article with my reasons why a cut in the official cash rate from 2 percent to 1.75 percent was the right decision for them to make.

is this you, what do you think?

Published on April 1, 2016

Life is an unfolding journey and while you’re living in the present, you’re designing your future.

Everything around you, all of the conveniences you rely upon, were once dreams or visions in people’s minds.

Life before mobile phones (let alone smart phones) and the internet was very different. The ideas and dreams of people exist before those things that radically reshaped the future and how we live.

Negative gearing and capital gains tax

Published on March 03, 2016

The Australian tax system is being closely examined, with the federal government trying to find ways of improving the ‘tax-mix’, without (they say) increasing the overall ‘tax-take’.

Aside from working hard to pay bills and support lifestyle, your only option is to take advantage of the taxation laws that exist at any time so as to build long-term financial security for you and your family.

Check my loans

Published on February 03, 2016

As widely expected, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) left the official cash rate on hold for another month while they ‘buy time’ to see what impact the lower Australian dollar, falling oil prices, share market instability and slowing housing market play out.

So while the official cash rate remains unchanged for now, competition continues to drive individual banks and lenders to bring new loan products to market, so I strongly urge that you speak with us if we have not assessed your loans and loan structures in recent times.
