    After a year of severe global economic contraction, is there finally light at the end of the tunnel? 

    Macquarie Wealth's Division Director Martin Lakos is back to share his insights on the global and national economic trends expected to impact business in 2021. 

    Known for his ability to clearly explain complex economic issues and market trends, Martin will provide a big picture global view and then drill down to Australia with an emphasis on the recovery, business and consumer activity and housing. Martin will also discuss opportunities from emerging themes.

    With a financial career spanning more than 40 years, Martin’s understanding of a broad spectrum of issues from big picture macroeconomics and current trends, to interest rates, investor strategy and what’s happening in key global markets, places him in very high demand.

    WSBC, in collaboration with Macquarie Bank, are delighted to present this exciting opportunity to hear from one of Australia’s leading economic commentators.
