Gav’s EV Conversion Car – Towing the Donor Car: The journey to convert an old gas car to electric starts here! I’m getting sick of paying for gas so I decided to do something about it. I’m not much of a mechanic but after doing casual research for some time, I decided I could convert a car to run on electricity by myself. No gas/hybrid oil-burning nonsense – just pure electric all the way!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83_Zig2vZlQ&list=PL35736A8800B0BBE2

Andrew Nicol: What’s so special about investing in real estate?

Andrew Nicol: What’s so special about investing in real estate?

Andrew Nicol: What’s so special about investing in real estate? After all, equities perform better in the longer term so why would you bother at all? Perhaps it’s the ease at which it can be done, the tangible nature of this asset class, or this marvelous thing called ‘leverage’.

Andrew, founder of Opes Partners, catches up with host Darcy Ungaro to explore what makes real estate a terrific asset class to participate in. Now real estate isn’t for everyone and just like Nutella, it’s only part of a well balanced investment plan. Being something that you can touch and feel (and live in!) makes real estate a very natural fit for many, but there are traps that catch young players out: Do you buy for ‘yield’ or do you buy for ‘capital growth’; Buy in a major city or out in an ‘up and coming’ area; Buy pre-existing or buy brand new – go it alone or employ the expertise of someone to coach you through the process?

Leverage, or the act of multiplying market movements (or or down), is what has historical made investing in real estate so lucrative for many already. Lenders, the one who make this leverage possible, are subject to rules and restrictions around how they can do their thing, and so keeping up to date around the changes and potential loopholes are critical, especially in this current environment.

Like any adviser, you need to understand what motivates them and what effectively ‘flavors’ their advice they provide – we all have bias and we’re all selling something let’s be honest -but by far the simplest test to put an adviser through is this: would they smoke their own crack? Andrew would, and he does, being a seasoned and passionate property investor himself he shares some mistakes and some successes along the way which can benefit the everyday investor if this is a path they choose to go down.

If you’d like to get in contact with Andrew or with Opes Partners, make a time to meet them or download some of their calculators or e-book, please visit their website: https://www.opespartners.co.nz/

Aaron Toresen: Grow/Protect/Transfer Business Wealth

Aaron Toresen: Grow/Protect/Transfer Business Wealth

44% of self-employed people are over the age of 50 (this is growing) and small to medium sized businesses employ the vast majority of Kiwi’s.

These two facts alone state something that’s absolutely critical – To protect the wealth of almost every New Zealander, we need to protect small to medium sized businesses. Given the age of the typical business owner, there’s also a need to efficiently facilitate the transfer of these businesses to the next generation.

There are many individuals and businesses, myself included, that work with business owners to facilitate this transfer of ownership – I do it via my business by assisting shareholders in figuring out how to transfer ownership to key people in the business under distressing circumstances using specialized insurance policies. Aaron Toresen has a team (the largest in the world actually!) that works with business owners to help them sell their enterprise for the right price, at the right time. When you’re considering selling your home, it pays to catch up with a real estate agent well in advance – they can advise you if it’s worth the hassle of painting and fixing the kitchen or now prior to sale. Selling a business is no different – It may make no difference to a purchaser if things aren’t 100% tidy when the reigns are handed over but either way, get advice!

As the Managing Director of LINK Aaron has grown what was a boutique NZ business brokerage to an international network, with over 500 brokers in 5 countriesLINK are the largest business brokerage in the world and still growing rapidly. Recently Link raised capital via one of our other guests on the show – Snowball Effect, which is likely to amplify and quicken their expansion even further – as evidenced by their entry into the US market – the head office in Los Angeles is the largest business brokerage in California.

Outside of business, Aaron loves tennis, martial arts, horse riding and of course, his family.
