Winter Newsletter

Welcome to our June newsletter and, as the winter sets in and the end of the financial year approaches, it’s a good chance to spend some time tidying up and reviewing your finances.

We’ve put together some practical ways to help you get your financial affairs in order, from assessing your current situation and dealing with necessary admin to checking that your super and insurances are still appropriate.

It’s also a good time to make sure your Will is up to date and to consider whether a testamentary trust is right for you. It can be a powerful estate planning tool that helps to protect the interests of your nearest and dearest.

And finally, whether retirement is just round the corner or way off on the horizon, having something in your life “to retire to” makes for a happy retirement – and a joy-filled life today.

Autumn Newsletter

With Autumn underway, the changing season is a reminder to take stock and prepare for what’s ahead as the financial year heads towards its final quarter and the May Federal Budget.

If taking stock also means contemplating your retirement plans, there is a trend towards fewer people working towards a final retirement date and then clocking off for good. Our first article provides some food for thought to help you to weigh up the options for funding your retirement.

Our second article looks at the new rating system for aged care accommodation which has been devised to provide important information for those looking at care providers for themselves or a loved one.

And finally, gut health is a big topic at the moment, with research showing that our unique microbiome impacts us in a myriad of ways. In our final article we look at ways you can boost your biome – and your overall health and wellbeing.

2021 Year in Review

There are no prizes for guessing what dominated the economic landscape in 2021. For the second year running, the pandemic was the focus for policy makers, markets, businesses, and individuals alike. CLICK HERE to read the newsletter.

December Newsletter

As another year winds down and the weather begins to warm up, you can almost hear the collective sigh of relief as 2021 draws to a close. Although we’ve come a long way since the peak-COVID scare of early last year, the cloud of the virus continues to linger over us, and will probably do so for some time. Share markets and economic data are telling a slightly different story, with many indexes around record highs and economic data most resilient (notwithstanding the transitory impact of lockdowns, which we’re hopefully now done with).

Click HERE to read our December newsletter.

October Newsletter

It’s been a wild and windy start to October, complete with flooding rains and earthquakes. Markets have been much the same, with volatility increasing as we move through the seasonally turbulent September/October period. Losses on the Australian Stock Exchange during September snapped an 11 month streak of monthly gains. But there are reasons for optimism: along with the warmer weather, rising vaccination rates are paving the way for the re-opening of borders and business after another winter of seemingly endless lockdowns.

Ethical, responsible, sustainable – call it what you will, but investing with a social conscience is on the rise. So, in this month’s snapshot we discuss what is meant by responsible investing, who is leading the trend and whether the returns are as good as the mainstream alternatives.

The concept of “ethical investing” is extremely subjective, and prone to nuance and manipulation. At Akambo, we have used ESG (environmental, social governance) considerations for many years to help guide our investment decisions on the belief that in order to be a good business (and therefore a good investment), a company needs to embrace a sound ESG approach. Of course, it is important to emphasise that ESG considerations are but one of many factors that determine whether a particular business is a sound investment.

September Newsletter

As large swathes of the Australian population begin to emerge from another winter of COVID gloom, there is a growing hope that Australia’s oldest football club, the Melbourne Demons, may also be able put an end to its own extended period of misery. When the Demons take on the Western Bulldogs in the AFL Grand Final in under two weeks, they will be seeking to end a 57 year premiership drought. The fact that the game will be played away from its traditional home of the MCG for the second year in a row serves to emphasise the contracted impact that COVID has had on many social aspects of Australian society.

The pandemic has also highlighted the importance of protecting elderly Australians, so we have included an article on finding quality, affordable aged care as the first article in our Spring newsletter.

We also look at insurance within your superannuation fund, what it costs and what you need to know.

And finally, are you feeling a bit lacklustre as the days roll by? It’s a feeling that is difficult to put your finger on, but it has a name, languishing. We provide some tips to help you on your way to flourishing.

August Newsletter

It’s August, and this chilly winter and periodic lockdowns can’t end fast enough for many of us. One bright spot, along with the golden wattle at this time of year, is the golden performance of our athletes in Tokyo.

After a shaky start, last financial year was an excellent year for investors. Returns from shares and property exceeded most expectations, as did returns from super funds. But amidst all the headlines about “the best year since……”, there were some compelling lessons for investors. Not every investor had the patience and foresight to stay invested, or more importantly, heed the balanced and rational guidance from an experienced financial adviser.

In this snapshot, we look at the importance of basic investment principles that can help in good times and bad.

As always, if you would like to discuss your investment strategy, don’t hesitate to contact our office on 03 9602 3233.

July Newsletter

It’s July, there’s a nip in the air and winter has well and truly set in, as Australia deals with COVID outbreaks across several states. But July also marks the start of the new financial year, a good time to reflect on how far we have come since this time last year and to make plans for the year ahead.

Share markets had a strong finish to the financial year, with the Australian benchmark ASX200 gaining 26.4% to the end of June – its best Financial Year since 1987. Akambo’s diversified multi-asset portfolios also delivered their best financial year returns, with the Balanced Portfolio growing 18.39% and the Growth Portfolio rising 21.58% (before fees). The Portfolios are currently skewed to companies that will perform well in an early stage inflationary environment and businesses that will benefit from the continued emergence from a COVID-afflicted environment.

The new financial year also rings in some new opportunities to boost your retirement savings. Some may require planning, such as increases in the amount you can contribute to super annually, others won’t require any effort at all, such as the increase in the Super Guarantee. In this snapshot we canvass all the changes happening from July 1 and how you can take advantage of them.

As always,  if you would like to know how these changes may affect you or how your investments have fared over the past financial year, don’t hesitate to contact our office on 03 9602 3233.

June Newsletter

It’s June which means winter has officially arrived. As we rug up and spend more time indoors, it’s a perfect time to get your financial house in order as another financial year draws to a close. And what a year it has been!

It’s been a year of change on so many fronts, including tax and super. So for the first article in our Winter newsletter, we cover some last minute ways to reduce your tax bill and boost your savings both in and out of super.

We’ve also included a summary of some major changes ahead for income protection insurance and how you may be able to avoid some of the costs.

And finally, optimism has been shown to be great for your wallet and there are a lot of things you can do to cultivate a more positive mindset – and improve your bottom line.

March Newsletter

After an eventful summer, of weather extremes, on-again off-again lockdowns and the swearing in of a new US President, many will be hoping that Autumn ushers in a change of more than the season. As the vaccine rollout begins, there are also promising signs that economic recovery may be earlier than expected.
While many retires are understandably reluctant to tap into their super too quickly, super is unlikely to be your only source of retirement income. Our first article looks at ways you can make the most of your assets to fund your retirement.

The change of season is also a good time to prune back your finances to promote future growth, we show you how.

And our final article looks at how to achieve financial harmony with your nearest and dearest. It can be challenging to be on the same page with your loved one about financial matters, but clear and open communication can pave the way for a unified approach.

February Newsletter

It’s February, the kids are back at school and the nation is getting back to business. It’s still not business as usual, but with the vaccine rollout about to begin there is a growing sense of optimism.
There has been a lot of debate in recent years about self-managed super funds (SMSFs) and how much you need to have in them to make them cost-effective. So in this month’s snapshot, we look at the actual costs and benefits of SMSFs and how to determine if running your own fund is for you.

It’s always difficult to predict the future, but it’s safe to say nobody foresaw what was in store for Australia and the world in 2020.
