  • Planning Still The Only Miracle Cure

    Good news came last week in the form of another miracle anti-aging cure. Sadly, the buzz kills at ABC’s Media Watch were quickly on the case. Reminding us it was just another “years away, only tested on mice, not yet even applicable to humans” story that had been pumped up by excitable journalists. Moving on […] The post Planning Still The Only Miracle Cure appeared first on Mancell Financial Grou...

  • Market Correction Obsession

    Feeling a little too comfortable? Without a correction, the tired media headline of “X billions wiped off the sharemarket today” has been on hiatus so far this year. In its absence, there has been continued pontification about the overvaluation of shares, hinting about our closeness to a correction, and which of President Trump’s tweets might […] The post Market Correction Obsession appeared first...

  • The Devil’s Cut & Angel’s Share at Nant

    It’s whiskey time again and for some investors across Australia the taste of this story is going to burn. Previously we’ve noted the issues investors have had with Nant Whiskey and the follow up endeavour, Nant Angus.

  • Seductive Investment Stories

    With disgruntled looks on their faces they were herded into a small conference room where the free coffee and tea was a small consolation for months of agitation. Not an ideal Tuesday afternoon in late February. At the end of the meeting they dispersed. Some talked to the media. Others muttered to themselves. They were […] The post Seductive Investment Stories appeared first on Mancell Financial G...

  • The Logical Sequence of Life

    In the ongoing talkfest over housing affordability it’s clear the only affordability solutions ever given serious consideration by any government are the ones likely to push up house prices.

Both seem like gifts to the […] The post The Logical Sequence of Life appeared first on Mancell Fina...

  • SPIVA Scorecard For 2016

    Every year S&P Dow Jones put out their yearly SPIVA scorecards and if they sound vaguely familiar it’s because we talk about them every year. We talk about them because they’re important. SPIVA reports on the performance of actively managed funds versus their benchmark indices over 1, 3, 5 and 10-year investment periods. And just as in recent […] The post SPIVA Scorecard For 2016 appeared first on...

  • Gold – The Bre-X Story

Instead of reaping the rewards of being […] The post Gold – The Bre-X Story appeared first on Mancell Financial Group.

  • Bellamy’s Another Lesson in Speculation

    You may have heard of a company called Bellamy’s Organic. It was the darling of the ASX last year as the Chinese took a liking to its organic baby formula.

  • Time & Discipline Bring Rewards

    Our files say they wandered into our offices looking for retirement guidance nearly 17 years ago. Records say their current portfolio began with a rollover in 2002. They’re now veterans of investing and an example of not listening to the weenies who tell you to time the market or pick stocks. That rollover in 2002 […] The post Time & Discipline Bring Rewards appeared first on Mancell Financial Gro...

  • What You Can Learn From The Donald

    November 4 2016, four days BD (Before Donald). The ASX had wormed its way down to 5263 and the Dow Jones was at 17,888. Market timers had driven both indices down, selling their own assets and their clients’, so they could sit in cash and safely ride out any uncertainty.

  • ASIC Report Shows Pitfalls of Direct Life Insurance

    Part of being a financial advisory business involves jobs clients want to delegate or don’t want to do.

    We’re a month away from the US Presidential election and while that might bring sighs of relief, it may also prompt feelings of trepidation.
