March 2020 Newsletter
In this month’s newsletter, we begin by discussing reversionary beneficiary nominations – an important topic for some. Our animation illustrates the issue of underinsurance in Australia, which is present in both the personal and general insurance space. The returns of asset classes can affect a chosen asset allocation; we explore the importance of rebalancing an investment portfolio.
Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) has released measures aimed at improving the long-term sustainability of income protection insurance; we provide an overview of these measures. We then share with you a video by ABC News on the cost of child care, and the impact this is having on some Australian households.
Lastly, with considerable attention being given to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak by media outlets, we have included an animation by the World Health Organisation (WHO) that provides information and guidance on the disease.
