It has been a confusing year in global investment markets with rises and falls on the back of conflicting information. Is it safe to re-enter the markets or is there more volatility ahead?

Amongst the chaos the Australian property market has been a shining example of stability and performance but will this continue?

In our 4th Annual Market Update we will uncover the driving forces in the world today and how they will influence our lives in the coming year.

Join us at this free seminar to find out:

• Is the worst of the Global Financial Crisis behind us?
• Why are markets remaining nervous and is it safe yet to return as an investor?
• The effect of the Australian election on the economy.
• Can the Australian property prices continue their current growth trends.
• The influences affecting global stock markets and currencies.
