Presentation by Ryan Smuts, Kris Pedersen Mortgages & Insurance      


Tired of trite 'money tips' that stop short at making more and spending less? Surely, as investors, we should aspire to a better guiding premise than that!

A financial strategy isn't just about bank loans and leveraging, it is also about serviceability or simply put - cash.  This presentation is designed to help you understand the effects of making more and spending less, how to put together a money strategy that is compatible with your investment goals and best practice guide to help you achieve better investment results. 

Talking points
  • The effects of increasing your (active and passive) income vs decreasing your expenses on your ability to fund future investment purchases; 
  • The 'downside' of making more and/or spending less in terms of opportunity costs to your portfolio; 
  • Is there a sweet-spot to money management when it comes to property investment; 
  • How long do you have to make more or spend less before you can reap the benefits as an investor?

Don't let his youthful appearance fool you. On top of being an award-winning mortgage broker, Ryan is also a passionate property investor and respected speaker. Ryan is no stranger to APIA members having given several financial presentations that are the most watched on APIA TV. He is known for giving solid no-frill presentations that give investors a coalface feel of where the market is at.

The Tenancy Practice Service and TPS Credit Control work closely with the Auckland Property Investors' Association. Our vision of bringing helpful resources, documents and high quality services to Auckland Property Investors and Property Managers is shared by APIA, so its a partnership that works well. 

The Auckland Property Investors' Association is a great organisation for those who want access to advice and information from a range of industry experts and partners.

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.

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!
