Welcome to the November edition of Financial Insights and Updates.
Every month we are pleased to provide you with a diverse range of financial themed articles that we hope you will find both interesting and informative.
What you might be pleased to know is that none of these articles are about the U.S. Presidential election or COVID-19. That’s not to say that we can (or should) ignore the effects of these events in our lives and this is especially true when thinking about our investments.
The sentiments expressed in the article titled ‘Positioning your portfolio in turbulent times’ is particularly relevant because one of the keys to financial success is to adopt the right strategy at the right time. As you move through the stages of life there are some tried and tested ‘secrets’ that will help you build and protect your wealth. As any experienced investor knows, all investment markets have their ups and downs. Regardless of investor experience, turbulent times are a cause of anxiety, and that can lead to poor decision-making.
So if turbulent markets are inevitable, even if their timing is not predictable, the question is: how should portfolios be positioned in anticipation of, and in response to market volatility?
When you have read this article we encourage you to read the other articles we have provided, especially the article ‘You might be surprised at what really drives interest rates’ especially since the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) dropped the cash rate to 0.10% the lowest rate on record. This makes it cheaper for businesses to borrow and invest in job-creating activities. However, mortgage rates also followed the cash rate down, allowing homebuyers and investors to borrow more which may subsequently drive up house prices. So how can the RBA keep a lid on housing costs without choking business activity and consumer spending – the answer is in the article?
Remember that you are always welcome to give us a call if you would like to further discuss anything you have read.
