Welcome to Lewis Financial's February 2007 Newsletter.

We begin this month's newsletter with a commentary on the attitudes and financial profiles of the average 'Generation X' and 'Generation Y' and how they compare to the 'Baby Boomers'.

We look at an article which discusses the possible benefits of a retirement strategy involving the swapping of income usually destined for mortgage repayments for salary sacrifice superannuation contributions.

We turn our attention to the growth forecasts of the major International economies in an article by Hillross Economist Brad Matthews as well as the prospects for the Australian Share Market in an article by AMP's Chief Economist Shane Oliver.

Lastly, we look an article discussing the advantages and disadvantages of Self-Managed Super Funds.

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