June 2022 Newsletter

Hi there,

What a celebration we have just witnessed in London over the Queen’s Birthday weekend. Celebrating her Platinum Jubilee as The Commonwealth’s Monarch, the Queen’s reign has seen it all, including 14 British Prime Ministers. It was such a pleasant change to have the media full of something to celebrate after heartache and horror dominating the headlines for too long.

We are all aware of the financial challenges that lie ahead. The rising cost of living and increased interest rates are making life difficult for many. Hopefully, the situation will be short-lived.

We have faced far worse financial adversity in the past, but, in true Kiwi fashion, we have survived and continued to grow as a country.

Remember these difficult times?

  • 1987 saw the great financial global crash
  • Inflation rose to 18.3% in 1987, then dropped to 9% in 1988
  • Home interest rates were at 22% – Yes 22%
  • Between 2006 and 2012, we saw 67 finance companies in NZ collapse, and between 150,000 and 200,000 NZ investors lost approx. $3.00 billion

We have lived through hard times before, and we will see plenty more in the future.

The best advice I can give you is to tighten your belt, sit on your investments and Kiwisaver and ride it out.
