In this edition, we first review the recent Federal Budget and what it might mean for your super. We cover the timely topic of digital assets and your estate plan and outline how a home swap can be the perfect idea for your next holiday. 

If you love traveling on a budget and experiencing different culture's then you will find our article on house swapping interesting. 

In our last Newsletter we told you of our staff member George Hillary whom we sponsored in participating in the Neverest Challenge. This was a 100km relay run through the Dandenong Ranges which is the equivalent elevation of Mount Everest (8,848 metres climbed)! The race raised money for schools and teachers training in Nepal, following last year’s earthquake. We are pleased to report that George and his team successfully completed the run and managed to raise $40,000! Well done George!

*Please see below some photos of George and one of his team mates completing the run.
