A changing world

 Happy New Year!
 2017 will be full of challenges, but challenges often bring about positive changes and opportunities. Caution and sound financial advice will hopefully see us all safely through the year.   
We'll have to exercise wisdom, as in the latest tendencies towards downsizing, ethical use of space, or building instead of buying from one another as a means to produce real wealth for the individual and the country. There seem to be brighter prospects for first time buyers in Auckland, and the number of building permits granted is on the rise.
Yes, the trumpification of the world is worrying. But humankind is a complex system, a sort of intelligent organism, apt to heal itself. It may take time, though. Things might become worse before they get better. It seems that we need someone whose sexism, xenophobia and aggressiveness are so blatant that we really need to be blind, or in possession of minus vision, not to see them. Yet grassroots initiatives, like the one by MixIt can save the day. ethical use of space
We'll be OK if each of us does our bit. Women's marches in NZ and the world show that there's a sense of urgency and a willingness to leave the comfort of the armchair and act for a positive change.
Should you decide to do anything about your loans and you wish to refinance, contact our team at the Fund Master. We'd be delighted to help you. We want to make 2017 as stress-free as possible for you.

Not one but several housing crises

New Zealand has several housing crises. First, there are rough sleepers, whose problems are likely to be complex, including drugs and alcohol and mental illness, and not simply the shortage of houses.
A second crisis arises from high rents and insecure tenure. Low-income renters who have to leave their home - for example if it's sold - are often unable to find an affordable alternative. Can we make a difference for these people?

Homeowners may face higher mortgage rates.

RNZ reports: ASB has increased its three-year and five-year standard rates by 0.2 percent and other banks are expected to follow suit.
The higher rates were due to a rise in global interest rates and banks' need for more deposits, said ANZ chief economist Cameron Bagrie.
"What we've seen is that the inflation profile of a lot of countries around the globe has started to pick up over the last two to three months. To be fair, a lot of that has been driven by oil prices, but that's really been enough to tip long-term interest rates off their lows."
Mr Bagrie said savers were likely to benefit from higher interest rates on deposits.
But he doubted it was a long-term trend, and said fixed-term mortgage rates may nudge back down.

Generate KiwiSaver Testimonials

I never gave KiwiSaver a second thought once I enrolled five years ago at my job. Not really understanding what it meant to be in the ‘default conservative fund’ my funds slowly grew to $18,000. Last month I changed to a ‘Growth’ fund with Generate KiwiSaver; based on my age and time left in the workforce I should never have been in a conservative fund in the first place. Now I simply can’t wait to get my next yearly statement to see how much my investment has grown!
