Please Note: Instructions for signing up for the next ASX Sharemarket Game, which begins on August 1st can be found below.

In all, 15 Group members participated in the latest ASX Sharemarket Game which concluded the day before our June meeting.  In a very testing and interesting competition, in which the lead changed six times, the winner was the Group’s joint entry  PROBUS BC. Richard Wilhelm was a very, very close second ($27 behind) and Stuart Reid third (a further $310 behind).  

The first session concluded with Terry O’Callaghan providing a briefing on how a number of retirement bodies are combining to ensure the continuation and protection of the existing franking credit rules and other associated issues threatened by the ALP during the recent Federal Election.      

After morning tea, we welcomed well-qualified investment adviser Will Hauser, a Corporate Authorised Representative from Escala Partners Limited. Will held our attention throughout his presentation, which included an excellent address and a very informative question time. Will has provided a copy of his overheads for us to study in more detail and I am holding some copies of these as well as an April 2019 Asset Allocation Booklet.  Will is happy to chat as well and can be contacted on 8651 2633 or 0403 431 106, or by email at  

At our next meeting, we will be discussing the investment outlook for the months ahead given the recent interest rate reduction.  

We are also awaiting the start of the next Game which will commence on 1st August with registration from 11th July.

At our meetings, we maintain a high level of communication between members, who generate and circulate worthwhile ideas, suggestions and investment information.   

All members, partners and friends are always welcome.
