It seems concern around inflation and market volatility is the new norm at the moment. I've had multiple enquiries from concerned clients over the past week.

One of the great parts of my job is I get the opportunity to speak with a wide range of people every week, from clients and colleagues through our business, to other industry experts through my media commitments.

This week I had two really informative conversations with fund managers Jonathan Armitage from MLC and Matt Sherwood from Perpetual. If you have questions or concerns around inflation and market volatility, I really encourage you to listen to these two interviews, as they should go some way to explaining the situation. These two guys are experts in their field with huge sums under management, so they know their stuff.

And if you'd like to hear more, you can tune in to Money News on the Nine Radio network (including 2GB & 3AW) tonight from 7pm, as I once again have the privilege of hosting the show.

On a different note, it's always nice to be recognised by clients and the industry, and last week I was thrilled to be named the Top Adviser in Adviser Ratings' number 1 Australian region of opportunity: Melbourne! Of course, nothing like this would ever be possible without all of you - I’m forever grateful for your loyalty, support and trust over many years. In an industry that has changed so much recently, I can assure you that we are in it for the long haul.
