Club Meeting , Wednesday 04th March 2020
Our guest speaker last week was Mr Paul Nicol from the Melbourne based GFM Wealth Advisory.
GFM Wealth Advisory has been providing high-quality financial advice since 1973. The firm is privately owned by staff and Directors and has held its own Australian Financial Services License since 2003. GFM are not connected to any larger financial institution and act as an independent provider.
Paul’s presentation was centred around the ability to have your funds and/or investment’s grow and prosper with the end result to provide you with a secure and robust financial future.
With the current outbreak of the Coronavirus and the flow on effect to the world wide financial markets this factor was widely discussed as an adjunct to Paul’s overall presentation.
As we are already aware of in short term the World Wide economic market has been severely affected and the major supply chain, that being China, has suffered significant trade restrictions, which has resulted in a very dramatic downturn thru all world Stock markets
As Paul elaborated the end result and the time line cessation of this downturn is unknown, but his prospective on market outcome was not to panic, stay solid with your investments and in the long term we should see a recovery, but this may take some time.
Paul presented a number of key factors when planning for your financial future and some of these were “ stay the course”, develop a game plan and stick to it and very importantly was to not react to emotional outside influences and stay with the game plan.
Diversity with any financial portfolio is a very key component and Paul advised that the ability to diversify not only within Australia but also to also look to a large and secure/ stable overseas companies and investment markets should also be investigated.
Paul’s overall presentation was very thorough and his experience within the financial market was evident via his enthusiasm as a result of his many years of dealing in this specialised environment.
The Rotary Club of Mornington wish to extend a big thanks to Paul for providing his time and energy to attend our Club’s Meeting.
Guest Speaker Mr Paul Nicol with Club President Ross Kilborn.
This coming Saturday14th March we have another Bunning’s BBQ and our BBQ guru David Lancashire is seeking volunteer’s to cook, serve and help out. If you are “ free“ for a few hours this Saturday please contact David ASAP, thanks.
On Saturday 21st March our club has offered to support the Benton’s Square Primary School and “ cook the BBQ”. The BBQ will start at 10:00am and finish at approx.  3:30pm. The day has been segregated into ‘ two shifts, the first from 10;00am to 1:00pm and the second shift from 1:00pm thru to the clean up at 3; 30pm. The afternoon shift is very short of helping hands, so if your free for a few hrs in the afternoon please contact Ross Kilborn ASAP, thanks.
President's Update
This weeks Presidents Report is very brief with just two “ carry over” items from last week, that being the monies for the Bush Fire Relief Funds that are yet to be allocated. A meeting with the Mornington CFA will be held to best ascertain where and to whom the funds should be sent.
With the Homeless Project currently under the management of the Mornington Community Information and Support Centre we will source further funding and also seek final clarification of specific asset costs before a $ contribution is made.
