Financial Insights & Updates - October 2021


Welcome to the October edition of Financial Insights and Updates.

Every year, the Financial Planning Association celebrates Financial Planning Week, to remind Australians about the benefits of financial planning. As part of 2021 Financial Planning Week campaign, the FPA has commissioned new research, the FPA Money & Life Tracker: Freedom edition examining the money and life issues of Australians amid the pandemic. We have included a link to the report in this email just below.

The research reveals that around a third of Australians had their income or ability to work affected by lockdowns, and that almost a fifth of Australians did not have enough in savings to support themselves through that period. However, it also highlights that many Australians have used the pandemic to reconsider their finances – spending and saving habits, budgeting and planning – and have an appetite to make changes. 

Financial Planning Week is the perfect time for you to take positive steps toward controlling your financial wellbeing – now and into the future.

Our articles this month “How much should I have in my emergency fund”, “Is your lifestyle affecting you borrowing power” and “Foundations of a wealthy lifestyle” all encourage you to consider your spending vs your savings, which are financial fundamentals. Please take a few moments to read through them and as always, feel free to forward on to family or friends any articles you think might be relevant to them. 
In signing off, please remember that we are always available to answer any questions or queries you may have. 

Warm regards,

The Team at Savanna Pride
