Jeremy Calnan

I just love investments and I’m obsessed with property.

Ever since I was a young kid and mum used to take me along to open inspections, I’ve had a keen interest in property.

Discussion around our kitchen table used to regularly include the topic of property, I guess you could say it’s in my genes.

Having worked as an investment professional since the early 1990’s the GFC prompted me to ask the question “What causes the share market to crash at regular intervals”.

I found the answer to this question in the study of land economics, which surprised me, until I really thought about it, and then I couldn’t believe I hadn’t seen it sooner!

Once I understood land economics and the true drivers of the property market, I was provided with a unique insight into how property interacts with the credit and share markets.

More importantly, it brought me back to my obsession with property!

I live in the beautiful city of Adelaide with my wife Alice and my spare time is spent watching my two sons playing AFL football or just relaxing with family and friends.

Professionally I’m a director of Calnan Flack an Investment, Financial Advice and Education Company with my time divided between funds management and the creation of financial education for clients.
