Reframing Auckland market challenges with a global perspective

The current market challenges facing Auckland property investors are by no means unprecedented, though it sometimes feels that way in the midst of the day-to-day grind.  The intricacies of the market's dynamics, as well as their complexities, cannot be properly unpacked without a global framework.  Much can be learned when we examine foreign markets that are much more matured than our own.  With the benefit of context, our decisions can only be made more robust.

ANZ Senior Economist Sharon Zöllner returns to APIA to do just that - contextualising current challenges in order to hone in on the question Where forth from here.  

Specific talking points include: 

  • Outlining of current challenges facing New Zealand and Auckland investors;
  • Contexualising these challenges in terms of the domestic property and economic cycles while addressing observed deviance from traditional patterns; 
  • Case study of foreign property markets with historical patterns that paralleled that of what Auckland is going through right now;
  • Examine the efficacy of foreign government and banking regulations towards restoring market balance and how these policies had affected property investors on a micro- and macro- level; and surmising with
  • What can New Zealand learn from these foreign markets 

Diversification strategies that complement your overall wealth plan

The next logical question then becomes In light of current market conditions, how can your wealth creation plan continue uninterrupted.  Surely the last thing you want is to become stagnant because the property market is, for the time being, trickier than usual.  ANZ Chief Investment Officer Graham Ansell offers a diversification as a solution.  Specifically, you will hear about different diversification options that complement a property portfolio that advance, rather than detract, you from your ultimate goal of becoming financially free.  

Specific talking points include: 

  • Viable investment options for investors from the three key phases of investment - beginning (equity and cash poor), intermediate (equity rich cash poor), and advanced (equity and cash rich); 
  • Long and short term projected outcomes for all of these options and how to compare to a dedicated property portfolio; 
  • How can investors utilise the equity and return in other assets to ultimately re-transition back into the property market when conditions slow down/prices drop 

The overarching purpose of this event is to facilitate learning from more developed markets and encourage broader thinking for wealth creation without losing sight of your ultimate interest and prefernce in property.

Through the Association I found the channels and methods to fund the purchase of property I never dreamed about. Grant Brown

All round it has been one of those things Neil and I felt was really worthwhile belonging to. We have learned so much it has just built our confidence in what we are doing.

I read two articles in the monthly magazine that saved me over $5,000. That is my membership fee for the next 26 years and I am sure I will learn a whole lot more! John Duncan
Fantastic organisation. The networking opportunities are brilliant and provide us with information and opportunities that cannot be obtained anywhere else. We learn something new at every meeting and we've been in this game for nearly 20 years. Pauline and Gyanen Kumar

I find the information obtained from various APIA meetings very useful in guiding my own property investment and rental management.  I also enjoy the networking opportunities with like-minded investors.  I am inspired by other investors’ success and find the more experiences and knowledge that I share with others, the more confident I become.  

Thanks to all APIA event organizers and administrators for your brilliant work.

I like talking to people and learning from their experience because it gives me the confidence to invest well. I think it is a knowledge thing. I now know I am doing things the right way.

Stephen Weatherall

My APIA membership has become a total success.

Every time I attend a monthly or regional meeting I come away with so many useful and positive tips that have added value to my property investments and management.

Not only that, the website is a great place for practical advice and useful information. It has now evolved into an important resource for my business.

Talk about value for money! The discounts I have been getting at Bunnings when I present my APIA membership card have more than paid for my annual subscription!
