Dear Sir/Madam,

Welcome to your Autumn Edition of the Chrysalis News

We have all just sweltered through one of the hottest summers for decades where several monthly and summer records were set for single hottest days and warmest days overall in Sydney. Autumn appears to be following the same path with new heat records being set. The weather was not the only thing heating up this summer either! The markets and world economies are on the march too.

The global economy is booming again as the "animal spirits" of business confidence return after a decade seemingly in hibernation - incredibly it's now been over 10 years since the GFC hit.  The return to normality means however, that the stimulus provided by central banks also has to be wound back both here and around the world - perhaps more sharply than expected as signs of inflation begin to emerge.  As a result, you will see upward interest rate movement in the US and begin to start slowly seeing it possibly later in the year in Australia.

The first quarter of this year has seen quite significant positive and negative short-term swings in the market as it comes to grips with how to unwind 10 years of stimulus and emergency funding and Trade War talk from Trump.  We expect that volatility to continue as a theme throughout this year but with a positive overall outcome.  Volatility is good for many of your funds as we expected this and have angled some of your investments that can draw profits during both rising and falling market movements.

We also expect property prices will fall another 5 - 10% this year in Sydney and Melbourne and particularly effected will be apartments.  Please see to read more on this if you're interested.  Having just returned from completing a Masterclass in Cambridge University in London, it is really interesting to hear what financial experts overseas are saying regarding our property boom and the general financial shape Australia is in.

Here at Chrysalis I want to warmly welcome Gary Pike to the Adviser Team.  Gary has been a financial adviser and in accounting for the past 20 years in South Africa & Australia and brings a significant wealth of technical and adviser experience with him.  You will no doubt meet him on your next visit. 

I'd also like to welcome Diane Diaz to the Chrysalis All Star Team.  Diane has been running her personal training business for many years and has decided to turn her attention to a new career path.  She is married with kids and is studying her Diploma of Financial Services presently.  You can read more about all the staff on the Chrysalis website.

From the ever-growing Chrysalis team we wish you and your family all the very best until we see you at your next review meeting soon.
