In this edition of Active Insights, Chief Investment Officer Craig Turnbull provides a recap on how the stock market and economy have performed in the September quarter, we have an update on our new chatbot to help answer member questions, and we’re preparing to launch in-person retirement seminars to help members prepare for life after work.
Australian shares have had a sluggish start to the new financial year as market focus shifted to signals from global central banks that interest rates are likely to remain high until well into 2024.
Have any questions about retirement? We’re running in-person retirement seminars at no cost to help members prepare for life after work. Just answer a few quick questions and we’ll let you know when a seminar is happening near you.
Annual member statements were delivered in September and would have landed in your letter box or to Member Online. If you can’t locate yours, please contact our Member Care Team and we’ll help you out.
