Almanac Sponsors: QTRBCK






Late in 2019, QTRBCK, the Canberra-based financial advice firm (with a strong on-line reach around Australia) became a sponsor of the Almanac and of the Almanac Lunch which was to be held at The National Press Club in Canberra in May (We were so looking forward to it – there will be another chance).


We have known the principals, Tim Robb and Jeremy Hall, for quite a while. (I think I went to a You Am I concert in Canberra with Tim in about 2010.) There is always a big Canberra table at the Footy Almanac Grand Final Lunch. That includes Gary Robb (Tim’s dad) who has been a wonderful supporter of the Almanac over many years.


Tim and his partner Caitlin play for the ANU Griffins and do a fair bit of the organising as well. Caitlin plays. Tim plays in the Reserves and is head coach of the Seniors. Jeremy was a footballer for many years in Sydney, on the south coast and in Canberra, but gave it away after a ping (more on that another day). He now umpires. And, by coincidence he will be umpiring the Griffins as they take on the Cootamundra Blues at ANU this Saturday.


Tim and Jeremy set up QTRBCK  last year. Things have developed for them as their very friendly and informal approach attracts clients.


When it became obvious that this pandemic was going to have a major impact on the economy, the Almanac lost a number of sponsors and advertisers. We also lost some other work around the provision of content to commercial websites.


There was pressure on all businesses and we expected to lose other support. However, throughout this time QTRBCK have continued to sponsor the Almanac.


The least we can do is to help get their message out.


It’s a timely message. I have included a link to a piece that Jeremy has published. It is an explanation of the economic and financial moment and offers some fresh thinking on investment. It’s written in the style of Jeremy and Tim – conversational. It’s not full of jargon, it’s very clear and I found it very informative. What will happen to investment in the coming months and how are the experts understanding the long-term.


See what you think.
