In January 2017 we published the 11th edition of Investing Insights, our bi-annual research publication in which we share our best investing ideas with our wonderful clients.

Investing Insights H1 2017 -- ‘Navigating uncharted waters’

Investing Insights Quantum Financial

In the 11th edition of Investing Insights we discuss animal spirits; liken inflation to the Titanic; hark back to Emperor Nasi Goreng and his wall; delve into Breitbart News and the Drudge Report; ponder whether we will find out who really shot JFK; and reminisce about the old firecrackers called throw downs. Have a stab at our really interesting quiz – you may be surprised at the results!

This edition of Investing Insights is a completely Trump free zone (this last claim is fake news). We hope you enjoy!

We share Investing Insights with clients and friends of Quantum Financial. If you seek advice from a trusted financial planner and would like a copy of our Investing Insights report, please email us or phone us on 02 8084 0453.
