The Latest Trends Shaping the Financial Landscape

As we welcome the onset of autumn, we find ourselves amidst a historic moment - the Australian Stock market soaring to an all-time high, defying the backdrop of elevated interest rates. In this update, we explore three key areas influencing the economic landscape and delve into how these trends may impact your wealth management strategy in the months ahead. 

  1. The State of the States: South Australia Takes the Lead. For the first time in 14 years, South Australia claims the top spot on Commsec's Australian report card. This quarterly review, spanning over a decade, highlights South Australia's remarkable performance, securing first position in four out of eight economic indicators. Victoria and NSW share the second spot, while Western Australia secures fourth position. This shift underscores the evolving economic dynamics across our nation and the resilience of key jurisdictions.

  2. Contributions Cap Adjustments. Effective 1st July 2024, changes to superannuation contribution caps present exciting prospects to accelerate the accumulation of retirement savings. The standard concessional contribution cap rises from $27,500 to $30,000, and the non-concessional cap increases from $110,000 to $120,000. These adjustments open new avenues for strategic financial planning and taxation optimisation.

  3. Property Market update. Following the national property boom during COVID and subsequent adjustments, Australia's real estate landscape continues to evolve. Contrary to previous trends, the latest data showcases a more balanced distribution of growth rates across both regional and capital cities. This shift emphasises the importance of an agile investment approach, considering the evolving nature of property trends. Highlighted below, we’re seeing sub-markets in all stages of market cycles.
