Balwyn Baptist Church, 517 Whitehorse Road, Balwyn (Melway 46 F8)
Please Note: Instructions for signing up for the ASX Sharemarket Game, which begins on February 21st can be found below.
At our first meeting of the year, we welcomed Barry Johnson back to the Group after several months away. Members discussed the Group, and individuals, joining the year’s first ASX Sharemarket Game, which commenced on 21st February and ends on 5th June. The necessary information for taking part in the competition is available on the “Investment Group” page of the Club’s web site. Individual participants are encouraged to join in with the Group’s combined entry “Balwyn Central PROBUS” in the League Section of the competition. It will have its own portfolio, composed of six ASX 200 stocks voted on by members at the first meeting, and then freshly selected at each subsequent monthly meeting during the competition.
The current turbulent state of the Australian Sharemarket, the findings of the Banking Royal Commission, and the expanding media coverage of the ALP’s proposed Dividend Imputation and reduced Capital Gain Tax Discount led to an active and informative exchange between our members throughout the meeting. This was expanded on by a very “pertinent to our time” presentation by Eric Berzkalns entitled “Millennials are Different”, which drew attention to how their lifestyle, material, political and financial aims and outlook are very different from people of our age.
Remember the ASX Sharemarket Game is open to all Club members – why not have a go!
See you there!
