11:30 am: Rudi Filapek-Vandyck - Uncomfortable Truths About Investing In The Australian Share Market

Founder and FNArena Editor Rudi Filapek-Vandyck shares his latest insights and analysis into domestic equities, while trying to solve the enigma of why Australian shares cannot keep up with their offshore peers. Be prepared to be enlightened and surprised at the same time, with a quirky note in between. Sensitive subjects such as whether banks might perform better,
whether Telstra will have to further cut its dividends, when the RBA is finally ready to tighten, as well as why CSL (and peers) are the missing link in many portfolios will not be avoided (please no rotten tomatoes afterwards).


Rudi Filapek-Vandyck has been in journalism for nearly three decades, of which the past twenty-one years have been in finance. After publishing his own journals and magazines in print, he successfully built up an electronic financial news service in the Netherlands between 1995 and 2000.

Since arriving in Australia, he has been involved with setting up various publications and services. As founder/editor of FNArena, he has developed various unique features and tools that today assist investors who conduct their own market research.

Rudi appears regularly on Sky Business. He occasionally travels around the country to present and showcase his analyses to investors on invitation of the Australian Investors Association (AIA), the Australian Technical Analysts Association (ATAA), the Australian Shareholders Association (ASA) and others.
