Episode 32 | Is negative gearing really going to be a vote winner? | Ben Kingsley, Empower Wealth & The Property Couch


Property investors unite to stop us all being thrown under the bus!

Ben Kingsley is probably best known for being one half of Australia’s number one property podcast “The Property Couch”. Ben is without doubt one of Australia’s big names when it comes to property investment and his business Empower Wealth has helped thousands of Australians. It was such a pleasure to get Ben fired up and we sure did get to talk about the things nobody talks about!

  • What is PICA and why investors should join.

  • Why a lot of financial planners don’t look at property.
