Right. Let’s get this out of the way first…
Interest rate rises shouldn’t be scary!
There might be some panic-inducing headlines floating around (Especially after the Reserve Bank of Australia’s announcement to raise interest rates for the first time in over a decade)
But in reality, rising interest rates are not bad!
To help us explain why this is true, we’ve got a NEW guest on The Property Couch…
Meet Evan Lucas, Chief Market Strategist at InvestSmart! He is an accomplished financial markets professional who has been investing in and researching global markets for more than a decade!
Evan gained experience at several top-tier global institutions and has worked with the likes of ABN Amro, the Royal Bank of Scotland and RBSMorgans!!
On top of debunking this idea, we’ll be uncovering…
📈 Why the RBA has decided to lift interest rates now,
📈 How inflation psychology actually works (plus how to flip your mindset around it!)
📈 And of course, does this change mean you should go with a fixed or variable interest rate?!?
(PLUS, the RBA and politics, predictions for the future, AND SO MUCH MORE!!!)
Evan will also be sharing his money story growing up and explaining what the GREATEST ASSET you can buy with money is!
So tune in now to cut through the noise and understand the who, what, and why behind rising interest rates!
