Financial System

Make no mistake, the financial system is unravelling. Much of it is out of your control, but there is hope.

The drawn out Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry uncovered many issues within our financial system in Australia. Ongoing issues regarding conflicts of interest, predatory behaviour and exploitative practices of professionals within our financial system have demonstrated the intricacies of the system itself.

Meanwhile, record low interest rates have pushed many Australian retirees reliant on interest for income to seek out higher-returning, riskier investments. This has helped to drive up asset prices, but has also built more risk into the financial system.
