December 2016 Client Seminar with John Schumann

New Executive Assistant to Ian Hosking: Diana Blackall

New Assistant Planner: Tu Vo

Tu joined the team as an Assistant Planner after returning to Australia from a stint in Jakarta. We gave her the opportunity to answer a few questions so that we can all get to know her a little better!

 

What was your favourite song growing up? 

Billie Jean by Michael Jackson. No matter where I am or what I am doing, the beat compels me to do a Michael Jackson dance move.

 

How did you meet your best friend?

I met my best friend on a flight from Sydney to Singapore (he is now my husband).

 

Summer or winter? 

Would it be cheating if I said spring and autumn? Canberra is undeniably beautiful during the spring and autumn seasons.

 

If you could time travel to any point in time just once, where would you go?

To the very beginning of time, just to see how it all started. 

 

Airline with the best food?

I think the only way to compare airline food quality is the breakfast, since it is comparing eggs with eggs. On that basis, Singapore Airlines is always a winner for me (although Emirates is a close second).

May 2016 Client Seminar with James Abela

Fiducian Canberra hosted its annual economics seminar in May with special guest speaker James Abela, Portfolio manager for the Fidelity Future Leaders Fund. James was extremely engaging and his presentation entitled "Five dilemmas & a framework for success" with quite a few laughs from the audience!

 

We look forward to our Christmas seminar later in the year, with special guest speaker soon to be announced.

Legacy Presentation by Planner Ingrid Stoker

In March, Ingrid Stoker of FFS Canberra was invited to speak to the Canberra branch of Legacy on “The Transition to Residential Aged Care”. Legacy is a charity providing services to Australian families suffering after the injury or death of a spouse or parent, during or after their defence force service. 

Legacy Canberra looks after nearly 1300 widows, children and disabled dependentsin theCanberra and Yass/Boorowa communities, and the topic of Aged Care is of particular interest to Legatees caring for the elderly widows of veterans. 

Ingrid has married into a family with a long history of military service and was more than happy to explain some of the practical and financial implications of entry into full time aged care.
