Some interesting ones I hadn’t noticed before.

APN/UKA European Retail Trust – Shopping Malls in Europe? – St George ML gearing ratio 60%.

Aurora Sandringham Dividend Income Trust The Trust will predominantly trade the largest 30 companies on the Australian Stock Exchange and aims to take advantage of the changes in the market prices of shares around the announcement of their half-yearly and yearly results. This makes the trust different from other listed investments. – St George ML gearing ratio 70%.

Who’s Raising The Rent? – Mediawatch

Sydney is full of Elissa Kracjers, young people searching anxiously for a place to call their own, at a rent that won’t send them broke. It’s almost mission impossible.

Until recently, Elissa Kracjer was a real estate agent, managing rental properties.

And she has some fascinating political connections too.

Elissa Kracjer: My ex is an adviser to (NSW Premier) Morris Iemma and one of my friends who is a (Peter) Debnam staffer thought it would be a
