From a property perspective, Australia’s housing market is the most stretched in the world. There is an over-supply issue with apartments, but if interest rates level out or decrease further, this issue should work itself out. It was noted that China central govt is pumping a lot of money into the economy to drive more activity.
From a political perspective, they commented that Donald Trump’s bid for the Republican nomination is producing some uncertainty, however if elected, it appears he will have to play to the interest groups. It’s a line ball game between Trump and Clinton. So not much to worry about.
Global growth is difficult to predict, Europe is tiring but should bounce back. The question asked at the function was “If you had $100 where would you put it?” The panel noted European shares (but wait for growth) or wait for local interest rates to pick up.
In Australia we’re looking at a low interest/lower return for equity markets for some time to come which raises the question about where people will park their money?
