‘We go where the pain is’: value, after the bubble

A punishing, indiscriminate sell-off has left opportunities lying on the floor. After a 13-year “anti-value phase”, the style is coming back into style.

‘Strong case’ to hit pause on choice performance test: Chant West

The performance test as it stands isn’t “fit for purpose” when it comes to choice products. And its bright line nature means tweaks are needed for MySuper products too.

  • Time for different opinions on market direction

    As the money-fueled tech bubble pops, value investing is clawing its way back to the top.

    Perma-bears vindicated, but the damage isn’t over

    The prophets of doom have seen their visions of a downturn realised, but the market is still tremendously expensive when compared with the bursting of previous bubbles.
