The economy and COVID: where are we and where are we headed? Presented by Dr Matthew Peter

Successful development of COVID-19 vaccines have improved the medium-term outlook for Australia’s growth. Vaccination programs are currently underway in several countries. As these are administered, health-related restrictions can be eased, and many types of activity can return to something close to their pre-pandemic trends.

We are delighted to extend a complimentary invitation to join us to hear first hand how Coraggio can expand and future proof your business followed by an exclusive keynote speaker session with QIC’s Chief Economist, Dr Matthew Peter at Coraggio’s upcoming Advisory Board Day on the Gold Coast on Friday, 3 September.

Opened by Coraggio’s CEO, Richard Skarzynski, who will discuss how being a part of a Coraggio peer to peer Advisory Board provides a sustainable solution to navigate your business effectively throughout 2021 and beyond.

Followed by Dr Matthew Peter who will provide insights regarding:

  • With the vaccination rolling out, along with fiscal and monetary stimulus pumping up the economies, a buoyant mood is enveloping investors, businesses and households
  • The Australian dollar is at three year highs, interest rates are at all-time lows and the housing market is poised to take off
  • Can we expect a quick return to pre-COVID norms, or are we likely to be disappointed?
  • Outlook on economic recovery and financial markets this year and next.
