What does 2017 hold for the Australian Property Sector? What will be the global impact of Trump’s “America-first” economic policy? How has Brexit affected the growth of the British economy? Will the tension between US and China damage growth?  

Domestically, the Australian economy is transitioning from a mining investment boom to broader-based drivers of growth. Mid-year budget update saw the federal budget deficit blowing out another $10.4 billion; a worsening economy could see the loss of the coveted AAA rating in 2017. Join us as our panel of key property leaders outline their expert thoughts and expectations for the coming year. 

The Presenters

Frank GelberDr Frank Gelber
Chief Economist Director
BIS Shrapnel

Frank Gelber is the Chief Economist at BIS Shrapnel. He has been for decades. Frank is a forecaster. He’s forecast & tracked many cycles in his time. This is another of them. He talks about prospects for the economy and property markets. The focus is on the medium term rather than the short term. His objective is to understand whether activity is sustainable. In a cyclical environment, the task is to predict turning points & risk, to understand how markets will develop on the logic of the players, and how market logic will change as circumstances and perceptions evolve.
