How the 2019 Federal Election May Affect Your Finances

Whenever there’s an election looming, it’s normal to be financially cautious. Now that the dust has settled and the results are in, it’s much safer to make choices about how you’re handling your finances moving forward.


The best way to make a sound choice of course is to be well informed. That’s why we organised an industry information night for our clients and their friends.

Our guest speaker for the evening was Bryan Ashenden, Head of Financial Literacy and Advocacy at BT Financial Group. Bryan presented a vital talk on how the Federal Election may impact our personal and business finances. Aside from gaining the knowledge needed to make clever financial decisions for the future, clients in attendance were also treated to some food, drinks and a chance to socialise and exchange ideas with one another. Everyone found it very beneficial to hear from Bryan about the coalition’s key policy themes for the year ahead and financial strategies to consider adopting.

If you weren’t able to attend, we can highly recommend downloading the slide presentation here. It’s got some valuable information that impacts on both business and personal finances.
