Implications for the 2018 Queensland Property and Finance Market

What does 2018 hold for the Queensland property and financial markets? How will interest rates and the markets be affected by the domestic and global economies in 2018? What would happen if there is another round of tightening measures from APRA and further cooling of offshore investor demand? Will the current supply finally outpace demand in the near future? What is the future of Australia's lending landscape?

Find out from one of Australia’s leading economists what the economic indicators are forecasting for the property and financial markets in 2018. 

This is an economic update not to be missed as Paul Bloxham joins us in Brisbane to deliver the latest trends, forecasts and market movements. 

The Economic Indicators Lunch is hosted by the Australian Property Institute and the Financial Services Institute of Australasia.
