    171. Prof. Mark Crosby on where are we heading?

    What does Australia’s economic future look like? How will the pandemic, China and other global issues impact Australian investors? 
    Joining us to talk about these issues and many more from the intersection of politics and economics is Professor Mark Crosby.
    Mark is an applied international macroeconomist and celebrated academic. He’s currently Professor at Monash Business School where he is part of the University’s leadership and executive education team, and the Director of International Business. 
    He’s also a Hibberd Lecturer at Melbourne Business School, where he spent 19 years before joining Monash in 2016, and has also worked as an academic at the University of New South Wales and University of Toronto, as well as a Research Officer at the Australian Treasury in Canberra.
    His academic interests are in international macroeconomics, with particular interest in policy issues in the Australian and Asian regions, including a lot of work on China given its major impact on our local economy. His research has focused on topics such as  the role of exchange rates in affecting macroeconomic fluctuations, the impact of macroeconomic factors on election outcomes, and the properties of business cycles. 
    He also consults widely to business and government both in Australia and overseas, including the Hong Kong Monetary Authority and the Monetary Authority of Singapore. 
    His most recent consultancies have examined policies for diversifying Brunei's economy, and policy issues related to South Africa's increasing current account deficit.
    Mark is also a regular contributor to the Australian Financial Review and The Age newspapers, and he is a sought after public speaker on matters relating to the macroeconomy.
    I was recently privileged to enjoy a presentation by Mark on the future of the Australian economy and its impact on housing and financial markets, which has proved to be very insightful and our discussion today will give you all of the key trends that you need to be aware of in order to make fully informed decisions in the interesting times ahead.
    In this very enlightening conversation today, Mark shares:
    What international macroeconomic policy issues are likely to have the most impact on Australia moving forward.
    What impact China’s policy changes are likely to have on our economy.
    He talks about whether the current strength in the economy will last.
    He outlines the biggest economic risks that need to be considered that are likely to impact on property and investment markets.
    He outlines the economic drivers of our property market cycles. 
    He runs through What have we learned from the pandemic and what we should be doing about it.
    We discuss the impact of immigration on property prices and what’s likely to happen with property when international borders are reopened. 
    He gives us his read on central banks approaches to asset prices and potential interventions moving forward.
    And given current booming conditions for good properties across the country, he outlines what he believes is likely to happen with property in the short to medium term, and where are the opportunities (and risks).
    This is a great conversation that will improve your understanding of complex global interdependencies and will help you to make good sound investment decisions moving forward.

    170. Darren Kingdon on how super is Super?

    170. Darren Kingdon on how super is Super?

    Is your super setting you up for retirement? Most Australians are unaware about the state of their super, and the harsh reality that it is unlikely to cover your lifestyle when you stop working.
    According to the most recent ABS figures, over 73% of Aussies over the age of 65 are surviving on an average of just $15,300 per year – just $295 per week. 
    But as you’ll hear from superannuation specialist Darren Kingdon, it’s possible to master your super fund and put yourself on the path to financial peace of mind and well being.
    But for many people, superannuation is just too complicated and full of rules and regulations, which makes you feel like you need a degree in super, tax, law and politics just to have a basic understanding of your super and how to play the game.
    Darren is on a mission to help financially educate you to take more control of your super. Because it’s your money and you’ve got a vested interest to do well - and the quality of your retirement lifestyle depends on it!

    Darren is a nationally recognised superannuation expert with over 25 years industry experience. He’s also the author of his new book Master Your Super … I’ve read it, it’s a very easy read on what can be a dry subject, and it’s one of the few great resources for aspiring SMSF investors.
    You can find out more about the book and grab yourself a copy with a 20% special Get Invested discount by going to www.masteryoursuper.com.au. And on the order summary page enter 'Bushy20' in the discount code section, click apply and the 20% discount will be applied - but get in quick as this discount is only for a limited time. 
    In our enlightening chat, Darren opens your ears and eyes to:

    The challenges and dangers of some institutional super funds.
    The risks of some managed funds and so called balanced funds.
    He tells an interesting story about Buffet’s bet.
    He outlines the portfolios of the masters. 
    He reveals the benefits of an all weather investment portfolio that covers all four economic seasons.
    And we have a great discussion on the ins, outs and benefits of self managed super funds or SMSFs and how best to optimise them.
    There’s an absolute treasure trove of information shared by Darren on the sleeping giant of super so here is your chance to get yourself up to speed.
    So if you want to find out how an SMSF and your property strategy can work together, or simply want to know more about what opportunities are available to you as a property investor, join me live on our unique KnowHow Property Freedom Flight program, where I’ll personally guide you through my proven process for property investment success.

    169. Kieran Clair on the value of valuations

    169. Kieran Clair on the value of valuations

    As a property investor, your biggest assets are equity and borrowing capacity. So property valuations are absolutely critical for property investors to grow their portfolios and have success.
    But why do we see such wide variation in valuations between buyers, agents and even among professional valuers? On a $500,000 property it’s not uncommon to see an $80,000 variation across two or three different bank valuations.
    This is because we live in the time of rational tangible measurement, where you don’t necessarily want to be right, but you fear being wrong, so this reduces everything to the lowest arse-covering denominator and builds in conservatism.
    So if you want to be successful as a property investor, you need to start thinking like a professional property valuer - with your head rather than your heart.
    And there is no better person to help you with this than our guest Kieran Clair.
    Kieran had over two decades of hands on experience as a property valuer and investor with one of Australia’s leading valuation companies, before becoming an award-winning journalist. 
    He’s the former editor of Australian Property Investor magazine, a national board member of the Property Investors Council of Australia (PICA) and he’s a regular commentator on property markets across radio, television, print and digitals outlets.
    Kieran helps other property experts grow their influence as co-founder and director of Bricks & Mortar Media – a business that helps create content and media opportunities for some of Australia's best known and most prolific property personalities and organisations.
    In our engaging discussion, Kieran reveals:
    How property valuers think and the set of rules that they have to operate under.
    He outlines the ‘carn’ defence. 
    We chat about what approaches you need to adopt in relation to valuations.
    He demystifies and debunks some of the perceptions of property valuers and the media.
    And much more.
    Given the importance of thinking like a property valuer to your investment success, Kieran provides a rare behind the scenes view of the world of valuation and unpacks all of the key valuation ingredients that will be important to you in the future.
    And if you want to hear more from Kieran and other property industry leaders on all of the tips and tricks to successful property investment, join me every week on Australia’s longest running and most popular property show, Real Estate Talk at www.realty.com.au. 
    Before we get into today’s enlightening chat with Kieran, if you’re ready to find out how investment can support your growth goals and create the life you were meant to live, join me in our unique KnowHow Property Freedom Flight program, where I’ll personally guide you through my proven process for property investment success.

    167. Part 1: Mark Carter on investing in value

    In a two-part interview, human behaviour expert Mark Carter talks about what value really means, how you can create it, and invest in it, for success in every area of your life.
    What is ‘value’? How do you define value? My guess is that you may struggle to define it.
    Why? Because the term value has become so overused yet misunderstood.
    We are constantly asked: What are our values? Are you adding value? What is your value proposition? How are you adding value?
    We constantly hear about shareholder value, the value of a firm, fair value, and market value. About value creation as another name for wealth creation. 
    But what is ‘value’ really, and how can you unlock the limitless opportunity it brings?
    To talk about this and much more is Mark Carter. Mark is an expert in human behaviour, and because of this, he has become one of the most sought after speakers and professional trainers in Australia … particularly in the spheres of leadership, sales and more. 
    For Mark, it’s all about understanding people. Understanding how they behave, think and make choices, both professionally and personally.
    It’s this understanding that has seen Mark hold senior and strategic leadership development roles for major global players across the Asia Pacific and Europe and led to him to work on projects where he designed and implemented sales strategies and bespoke methodologies for billion-dollar sales teams across the globe. 
    Over 20 years, Mark has moved from connecting with people in Europe to connecting with people in their own lives, all as a guest speaker and trainer.
    Mark has pulled together many of these experiences and learnings into his second book, Add Value, as well as his online academy … which you can find out more about at markcarter.com.au.
