CPB Client Seminar Series
Investment Outlook and 2016 Budget Update
The Adelaide Pavilion, South Terrace Adelaide (parking on site)
6.15pm to 8.00pm Wednesday 25th May 2016.


Matt Manning is a technical services consultant for the BT Group and is often the first port of call for planners and technicians right across BT seeking clarification on legislation and associated strategy.

Matt provided us with a breakdown of the 2016 Federal Budget, including the changes to superannuation contribution levels and arrangements, general tax rates and aged pension amendments. Matt spoke of the potential impacts that some of these changes may have on individual's circumstances and suggested some ways of mitigating any ill effects.

Nathan Masalski was a very capable stand in for Stephen Halmarick, who was unable to attend the evening at late notice. Nathan has a varied background in financial investment markets and is currently an Investment and business development specialist with Colonial First State Global Asset Management.

Nathan gave us an overview of how world events are shaping our investment markets and then went on to look individually at Europe, the US and Asian markets.

The evening finished with some prize draws and refreshments and canapes.

Despite the weather, wet and rainy, we still had an excellent turn out. Thank you to those who attended. Our next event will be in November 2016.
