Stay a Step Ahead

With EOFY almost upon us, we’ve provided a round-up of strategies you can consider to help improve your financial position. For all of our existing clients, please feel free to contact us regarding these if you are unsure of anything and if we have not spoken to you before, we would welcome the opportunity to connect.

Our article ‘Why you should hold your good assets’ follows a basic but fundamental principal of investing and demonstrates why selecting good quality assets at the outset can result in a far better long term outcome.

Another of our articles provides an alternative to investing in Term Deposits, now interest rates are so low and provides some clarity on how banks source their funding.

From all of us at Yield, we hope you enjoy this month’s newsletter and we’d love to see you at our upcoming Stockbroking seminar, which we’ve provided details on below.
