With Summer upon us and 2013 coming to an end we would like to thank you for your support throughout the year and the team at VPW would like to wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday season. We look forward to working with you again in 2014 and for many years to come.
This month our newsletter’s feature article examines the opportunities and risks involved in taking advantage of the new wave of technology companies entering the investment landscape. Technology stocks are currently running hot and while parallels can be drawn with the ‘tech wreck’ of 2000 to 2002, there is a view that that this second wave may herald the start of a new era.
Our second article on aged care deals with the myriad decisions around assisted care options when it is no longer possible to remain at home unaided. The article provides important information on recent changes in the aged care sector as well as highlighting the financial considerations.
Finally, while it is easy to get caught up in the craziness and consumerism of the festive season, it can be a time to reflect on what we are doing to help others less fortunate. Take a moment to consider what the festive season means to you and cherish it as a time of giving.
As always if you have any issues you would like to discuss please do not hesitate to contact your VPW adviser on 07 3231 4004.
