*Members Only* Investor Keynote - The good, the bad and the downright ugly


Date: 10-Mar-2020

Capacity: 200 (44% booked) 

Auckland Girls Grammar School, 14 Howe Street, Freemans Bay

Networking from 6.30 pm | Presentations from 7.30 pm

Members Only | Memberships from $75


When it comes to property investing there is no such thing as a sure bet.  The pragmatic approach is simply to know the state of play, plan for the worse and hope for the best. The three presentations at this meeting seek to showcase the good, the bad and the downright ugly to give you a sense of what is possible, what is avoidable and how you build on every outcome to a better future. 

The presenters 
  • Ryan Smuts (Kris Pedersen Mortgages & Insurance) covers the good by showcasing his latest personal property project, how the numbers stack up and how he will be moving forward in 2020; 
  • Daniel Brown (Wild Property Group) covers the bad by unpacking a recent set-back, how he crisis-managed his way out of it, the silver lining and how his philosophy is shaped by this event; and 
  • Keaton Pronk (McDonald Vague) covers the downright ugly - bankruptcy (yes, bankruptcy). Keaton is a Chartered Accountant and insolvency expert and will be sharing his observations from years of experience and tips for identifying and managing solvency risks. 

The content of this meeting is suitable for investors across all experience levels who seek a broader understanding of what property investment entails, its inherent risks and opportunities and ways to turn even the most devasting failure into a success story.

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.

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!
