Trump Elected - Initial reaction & implications

U.S. Voters wanted change and they now have it. Donald Trump has been elected the next president of the United States with the Republican Party likely retaining control of the House, and probably the Senate. This means President Trump’s policies could have a slim margin of support in Congress.

Budget 2013 Update

Analysts say the 2013 Budget measures contained no real surprises and few measures to excite businesses or stimulate the economy and financial markets away from current trend levels. The changes announced are unlikely to change the Reserve Bank's easing interest rate bias, the Australian dollar is expected to react negatively to the large budget deficit announced for 2013/14 and 2014/15, however, a lower dollar in itself should be positive for our export related companies and sectors such as resources.

Market Update - October 2012

Global and domestic share markets have been trending upwards over the last few months and have been less in line with the G7 economic growth indictors.

Our office has recently noticed a number of issues relating to death benefit nominations for superannuation. It is important to know that a superannuation member is unable to include directions in their Will in relation to the distribution of superannuation benefits and may only nominate a beneficiary or legal personal representative (LPR) to receive their superannuation benefits in the event of their death.

Seasons Greetings - December 2011

We think it is fair to say that 2011 has been a very interesting year, or is that an understatement? Think back to the significant floods across eastern Australia and disruptive cyclones across northern Australian. Coal production in mid-north Queensland was hampered over much of the year while banana production was decimated again in north Queensland. There were earthquakes in New Zealand & Japan. And it wasn?t just an earthquake in Japan, but it precipitated a tsunami and nuclear disaster.
