What the royal commission means for property investors

By Todd Stevens 28 June 2018 | 1 minute read

The royal commission has seen some significant shake ups within the finance and banking industries, with round four of the hearings currently underway. 

James Mitchell, Aleks Vickovich

In this episode of the Smart Property Investment show, host Phil Tarrant is joined by Momentum Media’s James Mitchell, managing editor of mortgages, and Aleks Vickovich, managing editor of  wealth and law, to discuss the Australian property market and how the royal commission is having an impact on investors.

They will discuss what we have seen in each round of the royal commission hearings so far, what we are still likely to see happen and look at the US property market in relation to Australia.

James will also explain the banking process and how it can impact your rates as a borrower, and the trio will share how the current banking market can be best used to your advantage in light of the royal commission findings.
