Interest rate hikes might have peaked by the time economist Matthew Peter presents his quarterly update to FINSIA members.
The Queensland Investment Corp’s Chief Economist is predicting a slowdown in the monetary tightening cycle after two more raises in February and March – but thinks the Reserve Bank can pause after that.
Dr Peter, who will be giving an update at a free member webinar on 16 March, believes the RBA can be patient and avoid driving a recession to bring inflation down.
“As long as inflation is coming down, and as long as the market still has confidence as measured by inflation expectations that the central bank is going to get inflation under control over the longer term, they’ll be patient,” he says, in an AFR article.
Members in Queensland also have the chance to hear from two more of Australia’s best-known economic thought leaders if they are quick - as there is still a few days to get tickets for our prestigious Economic Indicators event on 3rd February.
Our regular Economic Indicators update that has been a fixture in the calendar for close to a decade will again hear from industry specialists as they share their predictions and market analyses to help guide your year ahead.
Paul Bloxham, Chief Economist at HSBC for Australia, New Zealand, and Global markets again headlines the event again this year.
Dr Nicola Powell, Chief of Research and Economics at Domain will also be joining as a speaker.
Nicola has over 15 years’ research experience. She has a deep understanding of the Australian property market and has focused on property and demographic trends for nearly 10 years.
Registrations for this event close at 9am on Friday.
