‘Interest rates – where to from here?’

Interest rates in Australia and around the world have hit historically low levels.  So low, in fact, that for around 30 per cent of developed countries, investing in government bonds will provide negative returns after adjusting for inflation.


Why are interest rates so low?
In its simplest terms, the Reserve Bank of Australia lowers interest rates to stimulate the sluggish economy. Lowering interest rates makes borrowing cheaper and more borrowing means more businesses are established, more is consumed and more jobs created.

Mortgages: lock in certainty, or roll the dice on savings?

Over the last few years, interest rates have dropped dramatically. They’re now around a quarter of what they were a decade ago, and half of what they were just a few years ago. The Reserve Bank’s lowering of rates has got some economists and commentators talking; could it be time for a rate rise soon and how will it affect your mortgage repayments? Or will global conditions mean they have to keep pushing the interest rate down?

Nobody knows exactly when (or even if) the Reserve Bank will raise interest rates again. The good news, however, is that you’ve got a choice that allows you to hedge your bets. Whether you’re establishing a new mortgage or switching from an old provider, you’ve got an opportunity to choose between stability and predictability, and the potential for savings.

Protecting the life (and people) you love

With more Australians having children later in life, starting a second family and carrying significant levels of debt well into their 50s and 60s, life insurance has never been more important.

After talking to a number of client’s in our Oran Park office and around the greater Western Sydney region, I have found life is full of unexpected twists and turns and you never quite know what is around the corner. Protecting your family against the loss of all the things you have worked hard for over the years is the cornerstone of a sensible strategy to defend your wealth and current lifestyle.

Although most people know this, being ‘underinsured’ – or holding insufficient life-related insurance cover – remains common across all age groups in Australia.

Time to prepare for super changes. July is just around the corner.

Investors have a brief window of opportunity to make the most of the current superannuation rules before new contribution limits and tax rates come into force on July 1 this year. There has been a recent influx on enquiries at our office in Oran Park in regards to the upcoming changes and I thought I would share some of the new legislation for those wanting to potentially seek advice or discuss this in more detail.

The reform package announced in the 2016 Federal Budget and passed by parliament last year is the biggest shake-up of super in a decade. The changes summarised below are likely to affect most people to some degree, and wealthier Australians more than most. But there is still time to benefit from the current rules and ensure your investments are adequately structured.
