I’m not one for following the world financial markets and that will probably bite me on the bum when I come to start relying on my superannuation later in life, but I did find Marc ‘Dr Doom’ Faber’s presentation at the recent World War D Melbourne conference very interesting.
Held in Melbourne’s landmark Grand Hyatt ballroom, the conference hosted an impressive army of world renowned financial commentators and investors and it became apparent fairly early on, that you don’t go to hear Marc Faber speak expecting to come away smiling. Or maybe you do, as you’ll be one of the few people who now know what NOT to invest in!
Following the conference, Marc was hard to miss as he appeared on virtually every TV news outlet and in every financial editorial warning us that an ill wind was long overdue. The best part about his presentations are that he manages to couple some potentially very bad news with some very good humour!
I’m not sure it’s given me any more confidence in knowing what to invest in, but it has scared me into seeking some professional advice for my long neglected super!
