Financial Insights & Updates - May 2022                                                                                                          


Welcome to the May issue of Financial Insights and Updates.
The Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose 2.1% in the March quarter and 5.1% annually - the greatest increases since the introduction of the Goods and Services Tax in 2000. Our feature article this month looks at inflation rates around the world. It is interesting to note that inflation has increased further since the data in the article was obtained 3 months ago. The article “The effect of rising inflation” provides information about what is inflation, how it affects investors and how should you prepare for rising inflation.
The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) raised the cash rate 0.25% earlier in May and has been signalling more rate hikes ahead. More than 23 lenders have now passed on a variable rate hike to borrowers and will continue to do so with each increase. Our article “What to do if you’re facing mortgage stress after the interest rate hike” might be useful for those of you struggling as a result of the increase in your home loan interests.
Another article we would like to point your attention to is “Don’t leave your family's future in the hands of a Crowdfund”. We often come across public appeals for donations using ‘GoFundME’ pages via social media or news articles. Devastated families end up relying on the generosity of others in the tragic event of illness or death of a breadwinner. Come and speak to us and we will help you take steps to avoid your family having to resort to crowdfunding, where less than a third end up reaching the fundraising goal.
As we come to the end of May, we would like to remind those of you who would like to make a contribution to your superannuation funds to do so before June 30 and to submit your notice of intent to claim a deduction for personal super contributions if applicable.
In signing off, please remember that we are always available to answer any questions or queries you may have and to come speak with us before making any major investment decisions.

Warm regards,

The Team at Savanna Pride
