summer edition 2014

Happy New Year and welcome to the first edition of Be Informed for 2014. I trust you’re rested and looking forward to a successful year ahead.

2013 was a year in which we saw many changes at a State, national and global level.
The change of Federal Government following the election of the Abbott government has resulted in numerous changes along with reforms pre and post the election period.  In this newsletter we feature an article of one such example where $2.4 billion of Labor tax measures are to be discarded. 

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the team at Aquaint Capital who recently listed on the ASX with the assistance of our NSW Corporate Advisory team. In this edition, we spend 5 minutes with Group CEO, Yang Po Tan to learn more about the successes of this Singaporean based asset management and property investment firm.

Also, congratulations to Sam Kitchen, NSW Senior Financial Advisor who took out the Association of Financial Adviser’s (AFA) 2013 Excellence in Education Award in the New South Wales category. This is a fantastic honour given the esteemed field Sam was up against.

In this edition we are pleased to share with you the details of the Green Square School’s Healthy Eating Breakfast/Lunch program that we are proudly sponsoring through our friends at Souths Cares. The early program results are very encouraging and we anticipate this initiative will greatly assist the students in their development and well-being.

We hope you enjoy this edition of the newsletter. As always, I appreciate your thoughts, if you have any feedback about this newsletter or any of our services, please contact me directly at Whilst we always ensure that our information is accurate and well researched, advice tailored to your own situation should be obtained. Please contact your client Director of choice to discuss your specific circumstances.

We look forward to working with you throughout 2014.

Best Wishes,

N.T. Hatzistergos
