July 2019 Newsletter
Welcome to our first Bellwether Financial Group monthly newsletter.
This month we are taking a look at some key personal finance areas and their state of play for the new financial year, from making carefully considered “future proofed” financial decisions to the latest sector insights on self-managed super funds (SMSFs).
Also worth a read are the interesting facts just released on current Australian consumer payment behaviours along with a timely reminder to kick more goals this new financial year with a ‘practice makes perfect’ approach in the management of your personal finances.
In addition, our learning modules have been updated to reflect the new Australian legislation from 1 July 2019. Make sure you check them out and keep up to date.
We hope that you find your Bellwether membership to our Financial Knowledge Centre useful and informative, and we welcome your feedback or queries at any time.
