Chief Economists Forum 2020

The Chief Economists Forum

Trump, Brexit, China, Hong Kong and a Royal Commission, the year that was 2019. The global economy was rife with market changing events not limited to those mentioned.

As professionals who work in the business of providing financial advice and making investment management decisions, it's incumbent upon all players in financial services to be at the forefront of what matters to the investor community in the short term and beyond.

In what was its 14th year, the Chief Economists Forum was dedicated to presenting you the economic outlook from the industry's leading figures, both from Australia and overseas.

With continuing Brexit challenges, the rollercoaster of domestic property prices and down-hill slide of interest rates, 2020 is sure to provide many more challenges and opportunities.

The Chief Economists Forum for 2020 has concluded. We look forward to seeing you in 2021. If you would like to be informed of all things Chief Economists Forum for 2021 ensure you are subscribed to our Daily newsletter.
