Following on from a previous article - Australian Banks: The death of a 25 year bull market - last week, this week we highlight an article from Sam Ferraro on APRA and the impact their macro-prudential changes will have on the banks. While the article is slightly more technical, it may be one of the more important reads on the banks this year.
We take a look at accessing IPO's and Capital raisings. Small investors tend to be locked out of these raisings. In most instances, this is not an issue as the quality of the capital raisings tend to be poor. However, in the case of a strong IPO, you can benefit from a relationship with an investment manager who provides access to these IPO's and Capital raisings.
This week Guy Carson takes a look at the Australian banking sector, how it generates profit, how this has operated historically and what the outlook is going forward. Guy argues that the tailwinds aiding bank profitability over the last 25 years may be coming to an end.
Robert Swift takes a look at the sideshow that is North Korea. We do not believe that North Korea impacts global economic fundamentals and that any short term dips that it may create in markets are good opportunities for us to purchase assets we would like to hold over the long term.

Robert Swift presents 4 short videos on the impact of the withdrawal from Zero Interest Rate Policies on financial stocks, infrastructure, geographic segments and asset allocation. As global central backs commence the process of normalising rates we will see the investment landscape change, Robert provides his thoughts on how best to navigate global investment markets.
Robert Swift and Roger McIntosh compare local and international banks. Does it make sense to own the behemoths that dominate the Australian market? Are you unknowingly doubling down on exposure to the Australian property market?
