The impact of the Brexit on your investment returns

On Thursday 23 June, the UK held a referendum on whether it should remain in or leave the European Union (EU).  Ahead of the vote there was uncertainty and understandable concern about the impacts on global share markets and the flow-on effects to super and pension accounts. 

Following the result in favour of the ‘Leave’ vote on Friday 24 June, most global share-markets have fallen and the British Pound has weakened significantly.

Changes to Age Pension asset test

When the Government handed down the 2015/16 Federal Budget in May they also announced a number of changes to the Age Pension, with key changes coming into effect on 1 January 2017.

The Government will increase the asset test threshold (which is the maximum assets a person can hold in addition to the family home in order to qualify for a full aged pension)  meaning more people will be eligible to receive the full pension.
