Auckland Breakfast with Paul Bloxham, Chief Economist, HSBC
CPD: 1 Hour(s)
Does the “Rock Star” Kiwi economy need rehabilitation?
Ever-popular HSBC Chief Economist Paul Bloxham is the special guest speaker at FINSIA’s in-person breakfast in Auckland next month – updating his outlook for the New Zealand economy.
With the RBNZ the first G10 central bank to lift rates last year - following up with 500 bp of hikes - the Chief Economist at HSBC for Australia, New Zealand, and Global markets had predicted a hard-landing and a recession in his outlook earlier this year.
At the time his report, said the once “Rock Star” economy needed rehabilitation. But what are his predications for the rest of 2023 and 2024? Could we see another rate rise when the RBNZ meets for the final time in October? And could we see a fall in rates as early as the February OCR call?
Paul’s presentation will be followed with a short Q&A session at this event, which will include a plated breakfast.
Please note that seats are limited, please book early to avoid disappointment.
