Episode 10: Industry Super Funds v SMSF

Episode 10 of The Investor Exchange

Louis and Brett are at the helm this week while Joel and Steph travel the globe.  They kicked off with a You Can’t Be Serious jab at the Liberal party and how Australia has a new Prime Minister in Scott Morrison.  Brett discussed how Interest rates are on the rise but not the RBA rate and Louis explained how the banks cost and access to funds results in the rates home owners pay on their mortgage.  The discussion continued during their tiny 2-man round table, listen and enjoy.

Our Investor Exchange Round Table Discussion Covered:

  • Superannuation Funds – what can you do with them?
