It’s been two years since the height of the lockdowns and restrictions of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in Australia. Widespread vaccination has largely restored our freedoms, but some things have probably changed forever as a result of this once in a century event. Here we reflect on some of the long term social and economic impacts.
Something we don’t always think about when we are fit and well, is whether someone we trust could act on our behalf legally and financially, if we needed them to. Yet life is unpredictable, and situations can arise where you may become unable to make decisions or manage your own affairs due to illness, injury, or aging.
While it's not quite business as usual due to COVID-19 restrictions, the FMD team is fully operational and your adviser will be ready to conduct your regular review meeting, or any other meeting as required, in a virtual setting. These instructions will help you prepare for a virtual meeting with your adviser.
The post-COVID housing market recovery in Australia has certainly exceeded expectations, with property prices in Melbourne up 6.1%, Brisbane 6.3% and Adelaide 4.9% so far in 2021. As prices rise, more retirees are considering downsizing their home. In turn, taking advantage of tax and superannuation incentives to maintain the lifestyle they desire in retirement and protect their wealth.
We're looking forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your financial goals.
We'll be in touch to confirm your meeting your adviser soon.
Thank you for getting in touch. We will get back to you shortly.
