Money magazine 3 mins read

November’s Money magazine leads with the big question: where to put $10,000? We use this as a measure to take the temperature of a range of investment options. We then delve into some important practical issues, including: is now the time to buy a second-hand EV? what are the best ways to use a credit card as a cashflow aid in times of trouble? and how to tweak your super in ways that will pay off, tenfold.  


We also feature Matilda’s gold-star goalie Mackenzie Arnold talking about her fitness and finance journey, and look into the impact of vanishing bank branches in regional Australia. Pick up your copy of the November issue of Money, out now.
