The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2019-06-06T00:40:15Z Can you retire on one investment property? 2019-06-06T00:40:15Z can-you-retire-on-one-investment-property Investing in real estate is a proven wealth creation strategy favoured by mum and dad investors across the country. But how many properties does the average Australian really need to own, in order to retire in financial comfort? We canvassed the experts and did the calculations to determine the possibility of retiring from the workforce with just one investment property to support you financially. What we discovered is that this could be entirely possible – and it’s not too difficult for the average Australian to achieve. “In general, people need around two-thirds of their pre-retirement income after they retire, to maintain the same standard of living they're used to. With an investment property that pays free and clear rental income of $600 or so per week, combined with a modest superannuation drawdown, this could be readily achieved,” says Sarah Megginson editor of Your Investment Property.  The feature story runs through a number of scenarios, calculated with various numbers of properties, varying property values, and different yields and returns, to help investors work out what they should aim for in their property portfolio, in order to comfortably retire. It also covers: ·        -  The four steps you must take to generate an income in retirement ·        -  How to set realistic expectations ·        -  Common property investing misconceptions  ·          -  How to earn passive income through property investing. “When you have a clear view of where you’re at and where you need to be by the time you hit retirement age, the next step is to figure out what you need to do to make that kind of income happen,” Megginson adds.  “Most property investors lack an overall strategy, which is why this issue, we also offer a step-by-step guide to help you create a clear and personalised strategy that will help you move towards your property goals.” Elsewhere in this issue of Your Investment Property, we investigate the potential profit upsides of allowing pets into your investment property, and profile an investor who has managed to build a profitable portfolio whilst also raising a family. The complete guide on how to retire comfortably with as little as one investment property is available in the new issue of Your Investment Property magazine, on sale from 6 June at leading newsagents and Coles supermarkets nationwide.  To arrange an interview with editor Sarah Megginson about this retirement guide or any other feature stories in this issue, please email karen.uytiepo@keymedia.com or call (07) 2102 1194 ext 734. -ENDS- Your Investment Property is the intelligent property owner’s choice when it comes to learning about Australia’s $6.9 trillion property market.

Act for Kids named employer of choice 2019-05-27T03:09:42Z act-for-kids-named-employer-of-choice St Leonards, NSW (24 May 2019) - Milton-headquartered Act for Kids has been selected for the annual Employer of Choice list released by Human Resources Director (HRD) magazine. The prestigious list recognizes the companies and organisations that stand out above the rest in the overall employment landscape. HRD’s Employer of Choice survey asked participating employees about key areas that have been identified as critical to feeling engaged at work. Chief among these were whether their employers provided career paths, offered suitable learning and development opportunities, and rewarded and recognised a job well done. Those companies that achieved the highest average scores from employees across all questions are highlighted as ‘top performers’ in each subcategory. The cream of the crop are the Employer of Choice winners. Gold, Silver and Bronze awards have been given to those employers in our three size categories that are truly going above and beyond. Act for Kids has been awarded Gold for Employer of Choice 100-499 Employees and recognised as a top performer in the Leadership, Work-life Balance, and Health and Wellbeing categories. “There’s no question that some employers are better to work for than others. So, what elevates a company to the level of Employer of Choice? It’s clear that employers cannot merely provide an office and a pay cheque – those days have long since disappeared into the ether. There must be additional incentive,’ says the Human Resources Director team. “The survey results are revealing. They provide key insights into the areas that employees value, the disparity that can exist between their views and what employers themselves may value, and how that gap can subsequently be closed.” Read the full report in issue 17.02 of Human Resources Director, out now or find out more about Act for Kids HERE. -ENDS- Human Resources Director is the only magazine written for and targeted purely at the most senior HR professionals (CHRO’s and HR Directors) and top corporate decision-makers. HRD concentrates on the real issues and challenges facing the HR professional and the Industry, with in-depth features and analysis of what really matters with content featuring high level case studies, international and local profiles, interviews with HRDs and industry leaders from around the globe as-well-as leading news makers in the field.

Suburbs with sky-high potential revealed 2019-04-01T05:16:06Z suburbs-with-sky-high-potential-revealed-4 There’s no doubt there is some uncertainty surrounding the property market and especially for many investors, potential changes to negative gearing are giving them cause for concern. A new report by Your Investment Property provides an alternative route for those looking for a property in the current market by showcasing a list of suburbs with high cash flow potential.  “A high cash flow property investment is one that pays you more each month than it costs you to own. It provides additional income which you could use to pay off your mortgage sooner or put towards your other financial goals,” explains Your Investment Property editor Sarah Megginson. “High cash flow investments are increasingly popular with investors at the moment, who are feeling cautious about a potential change of government, and what that could mean for negative gearing. Chasing growth in the current market isn't always easy, especially for those on a low budget, but these high-yield suburbs could offer an opportunity to get your foot on the property ladder or grow your portfolio.” The report in the latest issue of Your Investment Property showcases 141 suburbs around Australia that hold the best promise of high cash flow based on a range of criteria such as a strong economy, local rental market and a track record of low vacancy rates and reasonable rental returns. Some of the suburbs on the list include: Moree, NSW Port Douglas, QLD Acton, TAS Mandurah, WA Braddon, ACT Hamilton, VIC Port Pirie, SA Megginson cautions potential buyers against chasing the highest returns without taking all factors into consideration. “Not all high-yield properties are created equal. It’s crucial that you consider the bigger picture, which means doing your due diligence on everything from vacancy rates and unemployment rates to historical capital growth and population forecasts,” she says. The full report is available in the April issue of Your Investment Property on sale now at leading newsagents and Coles supermarkets nationwide. -ENDS- Your Investment Property is the intelligent property owner’s choice when it comes to learning about Australia’s $6.9 trillion property market.

Cox Automotive named innovative HR team 2019-03-20T05:15:33Z cox-automotive-named-innovative-hr-team St Leonards, NSW (11 March 2019) – Altona-headquartered Cox Automotive Australia and New Zealand has been selected for the annual Innovative HR Teams list released by Human Resources Director (HRD) magazine. The prestigious list recognises the companies driving change and innovation in the HR profession. Following a nationwide call for nominations, thirty companies were selected for their innovative HR practices ranging from employee engagement to workplace culture. Cox Automotive ranks among this year’s top performers thanks to the HR team’s success in driving a cultural shift across the group of companies. A relatively new team formed less than two years ago, the team now comprises eleven HR professionals implementing contemporary HR solutions and frameworks under the leadership of group HR director Snezana Jankulovski. Over a busy 18 months, the team has successfully implemented several innovative people solutions, replacing paper-based performance appraisals with a forward-feedback approach; automating the onboarding and induction process for new employees; and introducing Women with Drive (WWD), an inclusive movement to celebrate the work of women in the automotive industry. “We’re helping set the standard for what great leadership looks like,” says Jankulovski. “That’s put us into territory that we didn’t necessarily expect, but it’s also brought far more benefits than we could have anticipated.” The 2019 Innovative HR Teams report is made possible through the support of sponsor Maxxia. In his introduction to this year’s report, Andrew Daly, group executive customer development said: “By recognising those who are pushing the boundaries and thinking bigger, the list helps set new benchmarks for the Australian HR industry.” “On behalf of Maxxia, I congratulate and applaud these HR professionals for their efforts in creating great experiences for their employees.” Read the full report in issue 17.01 of Human Resources Director, out now or find out more about Cox Automotive HERE. ### Human Resources Director is the only magazine written for and targeted purely at the most senior HR professionals (CHRO’s and HR Directors) and top corporate decision-makers. HRD concentrates on the real issues and challenges facing the HR professional and the Industry, with in-depth features and analysis of what really matters with content featuring high level case studies, international and local profiles, interviews with HRDs and industry leaders from around the globe as-well-as leading news makers in the field. Griffith University named innovative HR team 2019-03-20T04:39:10Z griffith-university-named-innovative-hr-team St Leonards, NSW (11 March 2019) - South East Queensland's Griffith University has been selected for the annual Innovative HR Teams list released by Human Resources Director (HRD) magazine. The prestigious list recognises the companies driving change and innovation in the HR profession. Following a nationwide call for nominations, thirty companies were selected for their innovative HR practices ranging from employee engagement to workplace culture. Griffith University ranks among this year’s top performers due to the HR team’s success in rolling out an innovative digital organisational development system. Universities have an obligation to be centres of learning on every front, including in their workforce – and HR has a crucial role in driving a continuous learning culture, says Kristal Lowe, Head of HR Strategy & Innovation. “As an industry, we’re facing increasing external competition where we’ve traditionally had none,” says Lowe. “Online providers are making big advances, funding is tightening, and accordingly there’s pressure to look for new revenue streams and maximise existing ones,” Lowe told HRD. “Our core business is built around student needs, but we realised that needed to be better reflected on our organisational development approach,” says Lowe. “Not only do we need to ensure that we’ve got the most up-to-date courses – we need to make sure staff are up to date on delivering them to our digitally savvy students.” To address this, Lowe’s team designed and implemented a new Capability Development Framework, providing users with customised development journeys, learning solutions and real-time analytics, and a range of career development solutions. The system was released in a soft launch in October 2018  and  has been “attracting a growing following of delighted users since.” The 2019 Innovative HR Teams report is made possible through the support of sponsor Maxxia. In his introduction to this year’s report, Andrew Daly, group executive customer development said: “By recognising those who are pushing the boundaries and thinking bigger, the list helps set new benchmarks for the Australian HR industry.” “On behalf of Maxxia, I congratulate and applaud these HR professionals for their efforts in creating great experiences for their employees.” Read the full report in issue 17.01 of Human Resources Director, out now or find out more about Griffith University HERE. ### Human Resources Director is the only magazine written for and targeted purely at the most senior HR professionals (CHRO’s and HR Directors) and top corporate decision-makers. HRD concentrates on the real issues and challenges facing the HR professional and the Industry, with in-depth features and analysis of what really matters with content featuring high level case studies, international and local profiles, interviews with HRDs and industry leaders from around the globe as-well-as leading news makers in the field.

Total figures may have dropped across the board, but this proves that lending gets tighter, and brokers jobs get tougher. They’re putting in more hours and money per file to get the deal across the line. At the same time, the increased compliance demands have forced them to become more streamlined, consistent and thorough, which will produce better customer outcomes. “While numbers are an important indicator of progress and success, they will never show the whole picture as regional brokers have no chance of making it to the Top 100 because their loan sizes will never match those of a broker working in Sydney, and this is something we need to work out how to accommodate” says Otiena Ellwand, MPA editor. “While the numbers these brokers are pumping out may not be attainable for everyone, they are in many ways just the same as the average broker: they want to help their customer achieve their goals and realise their dreams.” For the full report, see issue 18.11 of Mortgage Professional Australia out now or view the complete list of winners online at https://www.yourmortgage.com.au/mortgage-brokers/best-mortgage-brokers/top-100-brokers-2018/ ###Mortgage Professional Australia (MPA), published by Key Media, is the key resource that mortgage brokers and industry professionals turn to for in-depth industry issues, market trends, business analysis and intelligence.

The report showcases the hottest suburbs in each Australian state and territory – these are suburbs that have performed well above average and delivered real wealth to property owners over the last two decades. “There are plenty of suburbs that you’d expect to see on a report like this, but there are also more than a few surprises,” said editor of Your Investment Property magazine, Sarah Megginson. “We hope it inspires our readers to look beyond the headlines to see that real estate as an asset class can really deliver the goods over the long-term – provided you do your due diligence and buy in the highest quality areas.” Narrowed down from thousands of suburbs across the country, Your Investment Property’s 143 Hottest Suburbs report is the smart investor’s guide to the suburbs Australia-wide that have outperformed over the last two decades.
