Perth investment news – December 2023

The information in these articles is current as at 21 December 2023.

Welcome to the December 2023 Investment news.

Market returns across asset classes in 2023 were mixed. The US market powered ahead despite inflationary concerns, a banking crisis and the threat of a recession. However, the strong performance was driven by a very concentrated number of technology stocks. Locally, the Australian market produced a much more subdued result as banks struggled due to economic headwinds while the resources sector was impacted by a reality check in battery metal prices.

From a legislative perspective, 2023 saw the announcement of a new tax on superannuation balances of more than $3m which is likely to impact some of the strategic planning going forward. The Federal Government has also hinted at further reforms in the retirement income space in the year ahead.

The team at Pitcher Partners Wealth WA is proud of the business we are building with each team member’s contribution shaping our culture and helping to drive us forward. Our diversified advisory team, each with specialist capabilities, allows us to deliver bespoke advice across:

  • Investment and portfolio management
  • Strategic financial planning
  • Personal insurance

2023 marked several significant milestones which would not have been achieved without the support and loyalty of our clients and those businesses we elect to partner with. We are grateful for your trust and look forward to continuing our partnership in 2024. If you know of anyone who could benefit from our service, we would welcome the referral.

On behalf of the Pitcher Partners Wealth WA team, we would like to wish you all a fantastic and safe festive season. To our clients, partners, and friends, thank you for continued support and trust you place in us. We look forward to our continued relationship in 2024.
