January 2008 Newsletter

Welcome to Lewis Financial's first Newsletter for 2008.

In this month's issue we have included an article by Economist, Dr Shane Oliver, which analyzes the likelihood of a US recession and the impact this could have on Australia and the rest of the world.

We look at a commentary by Hillross Economist, Brad Matthews, on the attractiveness of Australian Shares given the recent declines in the share market.

We have also included an article discussing 'Transition to Retirement' pension strategies and an article looking at diversification and the difference it can make for you and your investment portfolio.

Our recipe this month is Artichoke, Olive & Roasted Capsicum Antipasto. Enjoy!

We hope, as always, that you find the articles of interest. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
