MDBC / Rabobank: Outlook 2020

September 4, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Dear MDBC members,

We invite you to join us at the Outlook 2020 event with Rabobank on Wednesday, 4 September 2019.  Featuring a presentation by Michael Every (Head of Financial Markets Research Asia – Pacific), this event will showcase what RaboResearch thinks 2020 holds.

From the plush seats in First Class, all looks well, or so stock markets say.  Deckchairs are happily being rearranged;  Yet below decks, mutiny is brewing from struggling workers; there are cracks in the bulkheads of the US, Asia, and European economies, flooding from one into the next; and our central – bank Engine room has made terrible errors and is belching black smoke.  Can we reverse course before we hit any of several icebergs, from Hard Brexit to Trade War to Iran?  Need we add that the Bridge is staffed with a motley crew who might not want to avoid the icebergs?  In short, there is a distinctly Titanic feeling about our current global economy: it’s huge, it’s impressive, and yet, it can sink.

Speaker: 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 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. Michael holds a Master’s Degree in Economics (with distinction) from University College London and speaks Thai.
