Great news from Fonterra for the coming dairy season – with a midpoint forecast of $9; meaning an opening payout of $5.40/KGmS. This is fantastic news for all of our clients , and NZ as a whole!
Bad news from the Reserve Bank with a 50% increase in the cash rate. Now at 2%, this is a 6 year high for the O.C.R. with a scar warning that it could be 4% by this time next year. This will mean mortgage rates rising and in many cases, double what we have been used to paying!!

Till next time,
