2008 - The Year of The Triumphant Dragon & the Dying Eagle? Jeremy Britton
Thanks for your support throughout 2007: the year that was saw some mining stocks rise 100% and the US dollar drop 20%. This year we expect big things due to the 2008 Beijing Olympics in China, possible further interest rate rises, the change in government and maybe some more financial shocks out of the USA.
Is your super invested in the USA or China?
(check closely before you answer! Call us if you do not like the answer!)
The 2007 year also saw the collapse of several investments, including trouble with Prime Mortgages, Australian Capital Reserve (ACR), Bridgecorp, Fincorp, Westpoint, Centro (80% loss on commercial property?) and the US sub-prime mortgage fiasco, among others.
Interestingly, NOT ONE of our clients was affected by the collapse of these companies nor by the downturn in the US economy. (Insert your prayer of thanksgiving here.)
Did the team have crystal balls? No, we just look back to the past for clues to the future... (Would you like to learn how to do the same? Call us now!)
Stay tuned for further improvements to the IMP business, including the addition of a new financial planner & stockbroker, new facilities for investment loans & home loans, a new life insurance broker and the introduction of some amazing new taxation structures and tips for making you money and saving you tax… Some clients now pay 5% tax, not 45%.
We will also run a FaceBook campaign during Feb/March, to give away hundreds of free books to educate & enrich our fellow Australians.
In April, Jeremy will be speaking at the Brisbane Churches of Christ HQ in Kenmore (April 1st), the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (April 2 and April 3) and at the Mackay Investment and Money Expo (April 19th). Free talks will also be given at Holy Spirit High School in Mackay and Mountain Creek High School, Sunshine Coast. Please contact us if you would like to attend.
If you know someone else who would benefit from unbiased education & independent enrichment, give us a call and see what we can offer.
All the best for a prosperous year
Jeremy, Jacob, Megan, Tim & team from IMP
