April 2020 Newsletter
In order to keep you updated on everything that’s happening in the world and how it could affect you, we have fast-tracked this month’s newsletter.
We begin with a two-part series on the Government’s recent, and now legislated (where applicable), support for individuals, households, and businesses affected by COVID-19.
We list various personal finance measures worth considering when an adverse event arises, as the outcome for those with an appropriate measure in place and those without can be vastly different.
Our animation illustrates investment (insurance) bonds; depending on your personal circumstances, there can be situations where it’s beneficial for you to tax-effectively build and hold a portion of your wealth outside of super. We also share a video by Morningstar, an investment research house, on market volatility and long-term investment fundamentals.
Lastly, for some of us, working from home may be the new normal. Given this, we have included a video by the Wall Street Journal on creating an ergonomic working environment to help reduce repetitive strain injuries.
We hope you are safe and well during this difficult time. As the staff at Bellwether are now working from home, if you have any queries or concerns relating to your personal finances, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
