I'm on the committee of NZ Shareholders Association and we are organising an event for Auckland investors on Wednesday, 10th April 2019.

It could be a good opportunity for you to consider other options to diversify your risks. One of the ways is the NZ Property Fund. Annual investor return was 19.33%. 

   
There will be two speakers: Xavier Simonet (CEO, Kathmandu Holdings) & Mark Lister (Head of Private Wealth Research, Craigs Investment Partners).

Mark Lister will be showing the latest market developments and "Where to from here?". He normally talks about real estate too. Tea and coffee served from 7 pm. You must be a paid member of NZSA to attend the event.

You can learn more and RSVP on Facebook or Meetup (you need to register and click "request to join" Meetup group).

Global interest in living in New Zealand rises after Christchurch terror attacks (nytimes.com). Immigration New Zealand received 6,457 registrations of interest from March 15 to 24, compared to 4,844 for the preceding 10 days – a 33% increase.

Who would have thought? It just shows that human behaviour is nearly impossible to predict.


Auckland's rising seas: insurance warning as 43,000 at risk (stuff.co.nz) Be careful with buying that kind of properties because you could have issues with getting insurance like people in Wellington.

● Is a tiny house right for you? (consumer.org.nz) What is the legal term of a tiny house? Where can you put one? Why are some on wheels? 

A woman discovered errors by a KiwiSaver provider which financially impacted her (nzherald.co.nz). IRD recommends that it's a good idea to check that the right amount of money is going into your KiwiSaver account.

Keep in mind that it does take about 3 months for contributions to be processed (kiwisaver.govt.nz). It's best to check the amounts every 6 months. By then, the timing differences should have worked themselves out. 

A kiwi businessman takes the Australian owned insurer to court to expose lack of standards (nzherald.co.nz). Evan Christian and Katherine Allsopp-Smith, owners of $20m beachfront home extensively damaged by fire, want stricter insurance regulations.

They would be living in a contaminated "patched-up" property if their insurer had its way. The fire was caused by an electric scooter in charge in the garage of the Takapuna home. 

The spokesperson said Christian's policy provided cover for sudden and accidental loss, up to the home's sum insured total of $4,536,888. "It's important to note that there is a consensus across all parties that there is a significant shortfall and that the home has been underinsured." 

Evan certainly knows a bit about the court battles having a legal fight to build a gate on a shared driveway (newshub.co.nz). I'm curious, how is his home value ballooned from 8 million in 2015 to 20 million in 2019? I know the value of the land goes up but not the value of the house unless they did a major upgrade.
