We are marking the start of 2020 with a special first edition of The Inside Investor, featuring the top stories of 2019 from our previous masthead, The Rub.
We covered a lot of regulatory changes and fintech news over the last year and have discovered our readers are most interested in stories that deal with investing, superannuation and the property market.
When we launched The Rub, we promised readers a practical “news you can use” approach to coverage of superannuation, investment markets, consumer finance, financial and estate planning, retirement planning and tax issues.
Since then we have surveyed our readers to learn more about what they find useful and interesting, and we have reviewed our editorial planning accordingly.
We will continue to provide the same coverage under our new masthead. In addition, we will support and complement The Inside Network’s innovative member learning and collaboration activities.
