It was a special running of the City2Surf last Sunday, with Boyce celebrating its tenth year of participation. As the top 10 fundraiser in the city2surf, Boyce raised more than $36,500 for children’s health and education charity Royal Far West.
The final fundraising total means Boyce has raised more than $265,000 during its ten years of participating in the City2Surf. “I’m proud of the Boyce team for their efforts in the City2Surf and for their various fundraising endeavours over the past two months, whether it be cooking barbecues or giving out hugs,” Managing Director Phil Alchin said.

From an office in O’Connell Street Sydney 45 years ago, to organisation whose clients span Australia, and the globe….
While the “tools of trade” accountants use today are more sophisticated than then pencil, eraser and adding machine that Mick Boyce had available in 1973, our firm’s desire to provide genuine care and timely information to our clients to allow them to make insightful decisions, with a view to helping them maximise wealth, remains unchanged.
“We are extremely proud to be celebrating 45 years in business this year,” Managing Director Phil Alchin said. “We feel just so lucky and privileged to share the relationships that we do with our valued clients. Our firm continues to live Mick’s ethos that accounting is so much more about people than numbers and we are humbled that a number of Mick’s original clients and their families continue to be clients today.”

After the calm of 2017, 2018 is proving to be anything but with shares falling in February on worries about US inflation, only to rebound and then fall again with markets back to or below their February low, notwithstanding a nice US bounce overnight. From their highs in January to their lows in the last few days, US and Eurozone shares have fallen 10%, Japanese shares are down 15% (not helped by a rise in the Yen), Chinese shares have fallen 12% and Australian shares have fallen 6%. So what’s driving the weakness and what should investors do?

2017 was unusual for US shares. While Japanese, European and Australian shares had decent corrections throughout the year of around 5 to 7%, the US share market as measured by the S&P 500 saw only very mild pullbacks of less than 3%. This was against the backdrop of a strongly rising trend thanks to very positive economic conditions and President Trump’s business friendly policies. In fact, up to its high a week ago it went a record 310 days without a 3% or greater pullback and every month last year saw a positive total return (ie capital growth plus dividends) which is also unusual. This, combined with a very strong start to this year of 7.5%, very high levels of short-term investor optimism and lots of talk of a “melt up” left the US share market overbought and highly vulnerable to a correction, which we may now be starting to see.

By the standards of recent years, 2017 was relatively quiet. Sure there was the usual “worry list” – about Trump, elections in Europe, China as always, North Korea and the perennial property crash in Australia. And there was a mania in bitcoin. But overall it has been pretty positive for investors.
