    WSBC, in collaboration with Macquarie Bank, are delighted to present this exciting opportunity to hear from one of Australia’s leading economic commentators on the outlook for 2020.

    Join us as Macquarie Wealth's Division Director Martin Lakos takes a close look at the global and national economic trends expected to impact business in 2020 and beyond.

    Known for his ability to clearly explain complex economic issues and market trends Martin is a regular commentator on prominent domestic and international media channels. His 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 high demand.

    When not advising Macquarie’s clients he gives presentations at conferences around Australia on a weekly basis, providing a personalised approach to the key issues facing a specific industry group or business.

    His financial career spans more than 40 years, having started on the Australian Stock Exchange trading floor in 1979. Martin has held roles in Macquarie Bank since 1994 and was appointed a Division Director of Macquarie Wealth Management in 2006.
