Is there any other Australian Bogleheads on the forum ?

Yes, there are lots of Aussie Bogleheads.

If five or more want to establish an Australian Local Chapter and one of you agrees to be the coordinator, just PM me and I'll get your group listed on the Local Chapter map so others can find you.

Good luck to our Australian Boglehead friends. Perhaps I'll be able to attend one of your future meetings.

Just send me a PM with your first name and an email address you want to use for this purpose. Also let me know what name you'd like to use (Australian Local Chapter) or some other name (Perth Local Chapter) or whatever you'd like to be called. Once I have that information, I'll add your group to the Local Chapters Map so others can find and contact you and you'll be in business.

Perhaps I'll attend one of your meetings at some later date when I finally make it to Australia.

Hi there, I am from Sydney Australia and am also interested. For the time being I'd advocate setting up an Australian Chapter in the first instance before splitting it up state by state.
Cheers

Hi all

I've been a Boglehead for several years but only new to this forum. Would be keen to join an Australian chapter. Cheers

I'm another Sydneysider - new to Bogleheads but have been roughly following his investment philosophy for a couple of years now.

Let me know if a Sydney/Australia-wide chapter starts up - I'd be eager to join up!

Well, we keep getting folks interested in getting an Australian Chapter going, but we still need someone to step up and agree to the the local chapter coordinator. Anyone interested? If so, PM me and we'll get your Local Chapter up and running.

Any more Sydneysiders hanging around? I know a couple more Boglehead sympathisers on other forums.
