MDBC: Rabobank Financial Markets Outlook 2019

September 5, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Dear MDBC members,

Please note: This event has passed.  
Thank you to those who attended this event.


Rabobank cordially invites you to Rabobank’s Financial Markets Outlook 2019: “Puzzling Times, cubed”, by Senior Asia – Pacific Strategist Michael Every.

As Nils Bohr once said, “Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future”.  However, ten years into this global recovery, there is more uncertainty about what the next year holds than there has been for decades.  Is the US economy set to boom on tax cuts, or bust as the Feds keeps hiking?  Can Europe survive the sunset of QE, and what will Brexit look like?  And is China a source of stability, or instability?  Moreover, can the global economy survive a trade war?  Can global institutions survive the US’ new stance?  The answers are like a puzzle.


Michael Every (Head of Financial Markets Research Asia – Pacific, Rabobank)

Based in Hong Kong, Michael analyses the major developments in the Asia – Pacific region and contributes to the Bank’s various economic research publications for internal and external customers and to the media.  Michael has nearly two decades of experience working as an Economist and Strategist.  Before Rabobank, he was a Director at Silk Road Associates, a strategy consultancy based in Bangkok.  Prior to this, he was Senior Economist and Fixed Income Strategist at the Royal Bank of Canada based in both London and Sydney.  Michael was formerly also an Economist for Dun & Bradstreet in London, covering ASEAN.  He holds a Master’s Degree in Economics (with distinction) from University College London and speaks Thai.
