    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 2019.

    Following on from the resounding success of last year’s Global Economic Trends Business Leader Luncheon, Macquarie Bank’s Martin Lakos will reflect on 2018 predictions and take a close look at the global economic trends expected to impact business in 2019 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 37 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.
