This beginning of 2016 sees the markets in good shape.  My advice to you would be to compare your current mortgage rates.  We now have a very good mortgage broker Duane Pedron, with the idea of fixing in some interest rates if you have some longer term debt, as rates are the lowest I have seen in 34 years in the industry.  You will find all his details below.

Today I want to share with you the 6 topical items we are currently working on with clients, which I feel are a sign of the current times.  In no particular batting order they are:
  • Transition to retirement strategy.
  • Aged care.
  • Getting in before May budget changes.
  • Being aware of 2017 pension rules changes.
  • Inheritance.
  • Divorce.

If any of these topics ring a bell with yourself, family or friends, please let us know as we can assist.

Also, I feel it necessary to say with great hope as we embark on a new season of football - Cmon the Mighty Dees!?

Here is to a great year for them, you and yours.
