Strategy radar 12/10/2012 > Snapshot: a potential housing ‘bubble’?

Highlights of the past week include: IAG partnering with TAL to sell Life cover; Steadfast preparing for an IPO showing the strength of the insurance broker cluster group against large insurers – and also raising questions about the unexpected departure of Frank O’Halloran from QBE after 120 acquisitions in 12 years and leaving a slightly ‘opaque’ architecture; BHP’s successful $1B 5-year bonds issuance; and Australia Post plans to switch to ride the digital economy.

After cars last week, the snapshot is about the other most important asset the average Australian will ever buy: their property. With the angle of asking if we are facing a potential housing ‘bubble’.
