If you’re not familiar with Charlie Munger, he’s Vice Chairman of Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway. 16 things I wish I knew

Munger is probably the most quotable investor of all time. Sometimes what he says is hilarious. Sometimes it’s serious. But it always gets you thinking.

At the 2008 shareholder meeting, Charlie Munger criticized his physique, said ethanol was “one of the dumbest ideas in the history of the world” and then fell asleep on stage. In front of 40,000 people.

This is why people love him.

Mogran Housell of Motley Fool shared 30 awesome things he’s has said over the years.

Here are a few:

Munger’s rule of investing: “When any guy offers you a chance to earn lots of money without risk, don’t listen to the rest of his sentence. Follow this, and you’ll save yourself a lot of misery.”

On patience: “Almost all good businesses engage in ‘pain today, gain tomorrow’ activities.”


On derivatives: “The world of derivatives is full of holes that very few people are really aware of. It’s like hydrogen and oxygen sitting on the corner waiting for a little flame.”

On reality: “I think that one should recognize reality even when one doesn’t like it; indeed, especially when one doesn’t like it.”


On trusting others: “If you don’t allow for self-serving bias in the conduct of others, you are, again, a fool.”

On legacy: “To the extent that all I’ve done is pick stocks that have gone up and sat on my [behind] as my family got richer, I haven’t left much contribution to society. I guess it’s a lot like Wall Street. The difference is, I feel ashamed of it. I try to make up for it with philanthropy and meetings like this one today. This meeting is not out of kindness. This is atonement.”


On pundits: “People have always had this craving to have someone tell them the future. Long ago, kings would hire people to read sheep guts. There’s always been a market for people who pretend to know the future. Listening to today’s forecasters is just as crazy as when the king hired the guy to look at the sheep guts.”

On accounting: “To say accounting for derivatives in America is a sewer is an insult to sewage.”


On math: “Mankind invented a system to cope with the fact that we are so intrinsically lousy at manipulating numbers. It’s call the graph.”

On finance as a career: “A big percentage of Cal-Tech grads are going into finance. I regard this as a regretfully bad outcome. They’ll make a lot of money by clobbering customers who aren’t as smart as them.”

Linda Barker – the interior designer known as one of the stars of Changing Rooms – has her wonderful home listed for sale on Rightmove.

The British TV presenter is selling Stradbroke Villa, the place she has called home for 15 years.

The country cottage boasts four bedrooms and three bathrooms in total, all designed and renovated by the celebrity designer herself.

Situated in Ellerton, East Yorkshire, the property has received two extensions over the years on both the kitchen and dining room.

While seemingly grand, it’s notable that the property still retains a cosy, countryside charm to it thanks to wonderful additions like a snug room with its own log burner.

The kitchen area looks out onto beautiful Yorkshire countryside while the gardens have been landscaped and include a relaxing decking area for those warm summer evenings.

Stradbroke villa is on the market through Savills for £465,000.

We put in place insurance for our homes, our furniture, our car, our holidays, and even our pets, but many of us ignore what funds these policies – which is our ability to work to generate income. 4insurance

So, how do you protect your ability to work should unforeseen circumstances like a major illness or injury occurs?

Well, there are various types of cover that can be put in place to manage this risk, including life Insurance, total and permanent disability, trauma and income protection.

Like all things, policies are not the same, with the difference usually in the detail.

Some common mistakes.

1. Life Insurance policy – paid out on death

When you buy a policy where you are one of many, the pricing is very competitive and sometimes no upfront medicals are even required. Health Insurance Parents Money

Everyone is accepted based on high-level data collection.

At the time of a claim, however, the policy issuer will normally require the completion of a much more detailed questionnaire.

At that point, if it is considered by them that there were potential issues at the time of issue that would have allowed the insurer to decline the application, they are at liberty to decline the payment when a claim is made.

And that is why it always pays to read the fine print before taking out any life insurance – or any other – policy.

2. Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) – own profession or any profession

A policy which covers any profession is cheaper, but for many people their capacity to earn a higher income is based on their speciality.

Being able to perform any work will not be either meaningful or financially rewarding for many people.

The payout for an “own profession” policy, on the other hand, at least goes some way to financial compensation if you are severely injured.

3. Income Protection – paid out when you are not receiving your normal wage or income due to an accident

With an income protection policy, there are two basic types being guaranteed, which are sum insured or secondly, based on income prior to the claim. 


If you have the latter policy, the amount of payment can significantly fluctuate if you undertake seasonal work or your work load temporarily changes.

Costs can dramatically decrease the longer you are prepared to cover yourself without an insurance payout – that is, when the policy starts to pay.

Ask yourself how long could you survive without a steady pay-packet?

Unfortunately, for many Australians, this is measured in weeks rather than months.

Secondly, you must ask yourself what you want for your family if you are unable to work for a prolonged period of time.

When it comes to trauma policies, most insurers have materially different definitions for what constitutes an event that will allow a claim.

Unfortunately, even common words like heart attack do not have a common meaning so, under some trauma cover, a policy would be paid out, but unfortunately in others no payout would be made.

4. Tax deductibility

Life and TPD insurances would be tax deductible if the policies are within your superannuation – even if an SMSF – whereas they are not deductible if they are held outside of super.

For TPD to be deductible it must be for “any occupation”.

Income protection is deductible, whether in super or outside, but inside super the deduction is at 15 per cent and not your marginal tax rate if held outside – so clearly it is important to understand the impact of the deduction.

5. What is being insured?

Many people insure to a specific value to cover their debt.

There is not even a consideration for their biggest asset, which is their ongoing income.

Unfortunately, having no debt on the family home does not provide your family with income to live on and a government pension payment may not be enough for school fees, vacations and life’s little pleasures.


If insurance is paid for debt reduction on, say, investment properties, then your family could miss out on any Centrelink benefits due to the asset values.

When looking at the level of cover, therefore, you must consider both debt and lifestyle needs.

In many cases, it would be beneficial for the surviving spouse to either remain at home to raise children or to have the ability to hire in-home care if required.

Their need is to have choice over the longer term and, of course, while we do not want to financially gain from the death of a loved one or from a serious injury, money at least will help them get on with life.

We should all periodically review our insurance needs as our needs are not static and for most people, costs such as education and a growing family increase by much more than inflation.

So, when reviewing or considering insurance policies, you should consider the following checklist:

  1. What do I need to maintain a quality of life for me or my family?
  2. Do you understand the quality of cover (what is included and what is not included?)
  3. Do you know the amount of cover (the amount of benefit insured)?
  4. What is the cost of cover?


With this checklist, you will notice that cost (within reason) is last and quality is at the top.

It’s important that you talk to a good insurance strategist to determine the quality and value of the various insurance providers and to then match your needs.

Make sure this person is independent, so they are considering all policies, instead of ones which they may either be only allowed to offer or be receiving a disproportionate commission to recommend to you.

Have you wondered what is depreciation and how a depreciation schedule can save you money?

Depreciation is a powerful tool to help investors maximise their cashflow, minimise the holding costs associated with investing and minimise their tax.

A lot has been written about various nuances within tax legislation and construction estimating.

So I wanted to take a moment to get back to the basics and things that everyone should know about a depreciation schedule, so here goes.

depreciation schedule




In essence depreciation is a reduction in value of an asset over time.

Property Invest

income tax law, you are allowed to claim certain deductions for expenditure incurred in gaining or producing assessable income, for example, in carrying on a business such as property investment.

Since the value of some assets decline over their effective life you may be able to claim a deduction for the depreciating cost of that asset.

Just like you claim wear and tear on a car purchased for income producing purposes, or for a computer used for business, you can also claim the depreciation of your investment property against your taxable income.




A depreciation schedule is simply a report that shows you the deductions you’re able to claim on your investment property each year, based on the decline in value of the structure and assets within (where they qualify).

Depreciation is not available to your principal place of residence; remember the property must be income producing.




Its only real job is to save you paying extra tax.

Money Back

The way it works is like any other tax deduction you might be familiar with.

Say you are a Doctor and you need to pay membership fees to your institute, that is normally a tax-deductible payment.

Any tax deductions you claim comes off your taxable income.

To put this another way, if you earn $100,000 a year and you have $10,000 worth of deductions in that year, the tax office now sees you as only earning $90,000 a year and that’s what you’re paying tax on.




Unfortunately, that question isn’t as easy to answer as it once was.

With the depreciation rules being changed in May 2017, it depends a lot on when you purchased, whether you ever occupied the property, whether it’s new or old and several other issues.

In general there are two types of allowances available:

  • Depreciation on Plant and Equipment, which refers to items within the building
  • Depreciation on Building, which refers to construction costs of the building itself.

Both these costs can be offset against your assessable income.




This could get messy, but I’ll try keep it short.


Essentially if you purchase after the 9
th of May 2017 you can only claim plant and equipment items if you bought the property brand new, or installed those assets yourself, such as adding new carpet.

Plant and equipment items are generally the internal assets like blinds, kitchen appliances, air conditioning etc.

What hasn’t changed is the division 43 deductions, which consists of the structure of the building including timber, concrete, tiling, kitchen cupboards an the like.

You can still claim those deductions as per the old rules.




The property needs to have been constructed after the 16th of September 1987 to qualify for depreciation claims on the original building structure.

Tax Time Papers

If it’s built prior to that date, then only the renovations or improvements will attract deductions.

This might be things like extensions, kitchen and bathroom renovations, painting and the like.

There’s no simple rule that guarantees a report won’t be worthwhile based on the date of construction because of these renovations creating deductions.

However, if the property was built after the 16th of September 1987, the report is going to be worthwhile under normal circumstances.


7. Should I get a Depreciation Schedule and how much does it cost?


Depreciation schedule costs are around the $600-$800 mark and I wouldn’t consider going any cheaper, though cheaper options are available.

Call Information House

Any less than that range will necessarily involve corner cutting on the inspection or the time taken to fully maximise and tailor a schedule to the client.

As for whether you should get one, quantity surveyors should be analysing that for you.

Simply give one a call or share an online link to photos and some basic information like the age, history, purchase date and they will tell you whether the report is worthwhile.

Worthwhile normally means they’ll find at least double their fee worth of deductions within the first full year of claim.

Personally, if there’s no value to the client, we’ll never recommend having a schedule done.

I hope that helps to give an executive summary on what depreciation is and how it works.
