In unprecedented times, market volatility and the news headlines that follow can often be a cause of concern for members – particularly when it comes to superannuation.
In times of uncertainty, it’s more important than ever to take care of your emotional wellbeing and find ways to stay positive.
After the economic downturn and uncertainty that COVID-19 has brought this year, the big question is when growth will return.
Looking ahead, there has been a recovery in business conditions and confidence. Conversely, retail sales weakened in late September as households reduced their spending with the tapering of the JobKeeper program from October onwards.
Getting the balance right between a safe spending rate and having enough income to enjoy retirement takes some careful planning. Investing for a reasonable return is one approach to helping your savings go the distance.
It is with the greatest pleasure to be able to announce that our OBT Financial Planner, Damon Zischke, has been named Future Leader of the Year in the 2020 Lonsdale Financial Planner Awards! Congratulations Damon!
The 2020 Budget is all about jobs, jobs and spending to make more jobs. We already have JobSeeker and JobKeeper, and now we have JobMaker and JobTrainer.
Long-term investment can be challenging. Given the inherent volatility of markets, it’s useful to remind ourselves of strategies we can utilise to meet long-term investment goals.
Since emotions pose a threat to our financial health, it is important that we are aware of them so we can make the best possible decisions to ensure financial security.
We are operating in a world where interest rates are now very low both overseas and here in Australia; a time of uncertainty has arisen. Therefore, in this current climate, your assets should be sheltered to ensure financial security.
